Have you ever needed to print a directory tree?  No, I’m not talking about a simple directory listing, I’m talking about a tree.  Like this:

│ ├───A
│ │ ├───1
│ │ ├───2
│ │ ├───3
│ ├───b
│ │ ├───1
│ │ └───5

I knew I had done it before but couldn’t remember how.  I only needed it for a 2 minute thing so I just printed the dir output and called it good.  But, I couldn’t leave it.  That is when I found:


The tree command did exactly what I wanted.  Hope this helps you if you ever need/want to print a directory tree in Windows.
