    You can't.
    Why do you want to use it?

    SHELL doesn't exist as a command anymore; and file handling in AL is only possible in OnPrem situations.

    The best way to solve this is by calling an external application throug (e.g.) web services.

    @Jan_Veenendaal is rigth, you cannot use shell or directly work with the file system of a Extension.

    But if you only are working with an onprem installation you can set your Target in your app.json to internal and there but you can work with both your file system and .NET, with .NET you can call a process (instead of shell)
    If your are working with cloud you can handle this a couple of ways, you could use a Azure service bus to work with your file system or you can set up a directory to save your files from BC and set up a windows task schedule to handle file from that folder and sent to to a printer.

    For help, do not use PM, but use forum instead, perhaps other people have the same question, or better answers.
