FinePrint 5.50|~|fineprint-2---m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.fineprint.com Full price: $49.95 (Server Edition and volume deals also available) Trial version? Y (3.06Mbytes) System requirements: Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP, Minimum 128Mbytes of RAM With this program you could potentially save yourself - and your business - wads of cash by using FinePrint to scale back both your ink and paper usage. For instance, you can use FinePrint to output pages without their embedded images. Or why not convert coloured text to black, alter margins in order to print multiple pages on a single sheet, and detect (and then delete) web page frames so that these aren’t printed unnecessarily? All these options and more are at your fingerprints via FinePrint’s easy-to-use GUI. ||**||WebPrint Plus for Windows|~|WebPrint-Plus----m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.macease.com Full price: $39.95 Trial version? Y (752Kbytes) System requirements: Windows 98/2000/ME/XP/NT Long rated as a great Mac app, WebPrint Plus now offers PC users similar wide-ranging print functionality. With it for instance you can select and instantly print or save any type of content - from a single character to multiple pages in virtually any program (including Acrobat Reader PDF documents), simply by dropping text from an application onto this program’s ‘Desktop Printer’. You can also add on-the-fly notes and time-dates to your prints, control the point size of your printed selections, employ multiple interfaces depending upon the documents you’re using and much, much more. ||**||ScreenPrint Platinum 4.9|~|Screenprint-platinum---m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.softwarelabs.com Full price: $37.95 Trial version? Y (1.5Mbytes) System requirements: Windows 95/98/ME/SE/NT4.0/2000/XP/ Printing assistance doesn’t come much more fully-featured than this. With ScreenPrint you can print and/or capture full screens, active windows, and client areas, as well as full DOS screens and even the entire contents of scrolling web pages. The program’s ‘Image Cataloging System’ uses automatic visual bookmarking to organise your images, and its enhanced image editor includes 27 special effects and can save and batch convert images to most popular graphic formats such as jpeg, gif etc. Those who stress about such things will also be pleased to note that ScreenPrint doesn’t register its components in the Windows Registry, which means it won’t slow down your system’s performance and you can copy its trial version files to another employee’s PC for them to try out too. ||**||PrintFolder Pro 3.2|~|Print-folder--m.jpg|~||~|Web: http://no-nonsense-software.com Full price: $29.95 (individual license) Trial version?

This fast, efficient release lets you print a list of files in any folder (and in its subfolders, too, if you wish) via a pop-up menu that actually appears within Windows Explorer. Not only that, but you can customise file lists to suit your needs, list filenames only, or include file sizes, dates, times and more. ||**||Alagus Print Admin|~|Alagus-print-admin---m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.alagus.com Full price: Alagus Print Admin 2.0 Light Edition - $68, Alagus Print Admin 2.0 Standard Edition - $119, Alagus Print Admin 3.0 Professional Edition - $196 Trial version?

The client part is named Alagus Print Admin Client (APAC). Using this client-server system, administrators can manipulate a network printer from any PC on the local network. ||**||Batch & Print Pro 2.02|~|Batchg-&-print-pro--m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.traction-software.co.uk Full price: $59.95 (individual license), site licenses also available Trial version?

The application supports all sorts of associated shell printable documents - from PDFs to PowerPoint documents and HTML files - and it also includes directory monitoring (whereby when users drop files into hot folders on your network the program will automatically send these to the correct printer), a print scheduler (for printing specified documents to a specified printer at regular or pre-set time), load balancing and the internal direct printing of native printer formats. ||**||JR Directory Printer 1.2 |~|JR-directory-printer---m.jpg|~||~|Web: www.spadixbd.com Full price: Free (173Kbytes) System requirements: Windows 95/98/2000/NT/ME/XP This tiny footprint utility has been created with one aim in mind: to help you accurately print a listing of every subdirectory and/or file contained within a Windows folder directory (and/or subdirectory).

Meanwhile search results are displayed either in NotePad or your PC’s default text editor. ||**||
