View Effective Permissions on Files and Folders

Hi All - I wanted to know what is the best way to show a none technical person a list of effective Permissions on Folders  in their environment, it will take too long to screen shot every folder and I am sure there is a better way to achieve this. I am am using 2008 R2, any advice would be welcome.

You can use the 'Steps Recorder' in Windows Accessories to create screenshots as you  use the mouse and document it automatically.
A video capture maybe more useful, using a tool such as CamStudio to record the procedure.

show a none technical person
First you need a slide that shows what permissions allow and don't allow.. Permissions can be a very technical subject there is no easy way to explain it. Even semi-experts get it wrong sometimes.
