Does anybody knows how can be a finder window printed? like it was in the old times (the hole content of the window. e.g. a cd window with lots of files and folders)

this is simple (though not as simple as pressing a button i suppose )

Select all files (command+a). and Copy (command+c).

Open TextEdit (or the text editor of your preference), and Paste (command+v).

This will paste the file names, which you can then print off or save.

yes I knew that, only that it doesn´t make any difference between folders or files, it just put a list. Thanks though

You can also take a screenshot of the window by holding down cmd+shft+4, and then hitting the spacebar, and use your mouse to select the window you want to take a screenshot of. You can then print this out from preview.

If the list is longer than the screen, take a screenshot of as much of the list as possible, and then scroll down, take another shot, etc.

The images should appear as a PDF file on your desktop.

F3 takes the entire desktop picture... then you can edit that down and crop what you want too.
