Print a Batch of Files without Evoking Multiple Commands


Q. Is there a way I can print a whole bunch of files with one command—in other words, without having to do a sequence of Ctrl-P for each file?

A. I don’t know how to do that in Word versions earlier than Word 2000 without writing a macro for it, but in Word 2000 and later, it’s a piece of cake. All you do, either from Exploring or from Word’s Open function, is hold down the Ctrl key and highlight the files you want printed, and then hit the Print command. It’s very convenient.
