    Hi,

    Not sure if this is the right group to post this question. I have a lot
    of html and htm files in a folder and I want to print them all without
    having to manually select each one and print the file. Does anyone know
    how to print all files at once?

    I was going to suggest something similar:

    lpr -P[PRINTER] *.htm

    The investment in learning an operating system with a CLI (command-line
    interface) is invaluable. You can manipulate thousands of pages using
    short, unambiguous statements. Unfortunately, I don't think Windows Vista
    will incorporate a new CLI. There were talks about whether Longhorn (at the
    time) would have sufficient time for that inclusion. I can't give you a
    definite answer.

    Your best friend at present are keyboard accelerators, e.g. CTRL+O
    (traditionally) for "Open...", CTRL+P for printing and so forth.

    I strongly believe that poor user interfaces and lack of productivity tools
    are the key motives for people employ Windows-proficient users to open and
    print document in batch mode, copy numbers from papers, run daily jobs
    (otherwise cron jobs)... you probably see where my argument is going.
