I would like to print out the contents of several folders and subfolders.  I would like to print their names, and what their file extensions are.

use a program called treesize its free. You can scan a hard drive or folder and it will list all files and the size of those files. Then you can export that report to a pdf/xps/etc.

I like that app and would use it at home.  However, my company does not allow the downloading and installation of non-approved applications.
How can I get this without use of a third-party app without 10 levels of approval..

You can always open up the command prompt, "cmd.exe", and browse to the folder you would like to view. (cd c:\windows\system32, or whatever the folder is).  Once you are in the folder you can type the following:

dir /d /s >> %USERPROFILE%\desktop\filename.txt

dir /d /s lists the files and >> pipes the output to a file which can then be printed.

tree /f  will give you a nicely structured list of folders and files btw, though not the additional file details.
