I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi and welcome to SevenForums!

I don't have a printer installed so I decided to test what happens if I try that myself. Same as you, nothing happens. So maybe your printer isn't recognized or installed properly?!

Here's a page that lists 4 scenarios why it might not work: Unable to print or view the print preview of a webpage in Internet Explorer

On my Toshiba Satellite, if I am writing an email or am on a website forum, when I try to insert a letter with my pointing device, a dialogue box appears with options such as ?open? or ?select? or ?print?. If I wait a few seconds or press escape then the box disappears. How do I stop the dialogue box appearing?

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.

Ok, got a good one for ya.
Windows 7 64 bit
8 GB ram
lots of hdd space
Windows fully updated.

Have two printers installed. A HP 1005 laser and an Epson Stylus R1900.

If the HP is selected as default printer, then the print dialog box opens immediately.

But if the R1900 is set as default, then it can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minues for just the print dialog box to open.

All drivers updated and reinstalled too many times to mention. Epson support says its the operating system, the print spooler. But if so then why no issues with the HP?

I am the second tech to look at this. Epson was unable to help.

Any ideas?

I wasn't sure where to post this question so I am posting it here. The issue we are having is printing to a networked copier. If we print one job at a time everything works. But if I send multiple jobs all at once and the queue builds up the copier just hangs and the jobs just stay in the queue. The only way to get it going again is to turn the copier off/on. I've updated the drivers for the copier, changed the patch cable on copier and switch, moved it to a different port on the swtich. None of those things did anything. I am actually thinking there is something going on with the copier. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

Yesterday my black ink cartridge on my Canon i850 printer ran dry so I replaced it with a brand new cartridge. Now whenever I try to print, the color portion of the page prints fine, but the black doesn't print at all. For example, I printed a webpage and the color graphics came out okay, but the black text portion didn't show up.

I'm wondering if the new cartridge may be faulty. It certainly appears that I've installed it correctly, the same way I've done many times before. Since this problem arose immediately after I changed cartridges I don't believe I have a hardware problem or a printer driver problem. I have a spare black cartridge which I could try, but I don't particularly want to open a second brand new cartridge.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who might be able to solve my problem.

Thank you.

I have created a document in Excel 2016 with 5 work sheets.
Each worksheet comprises 2 pages.
I want the document to be able to print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets.
The Print Preview appears fine, with 10 pages, and all in the correct sequence.
After completing the document at home, I printed it on a Canon printer and all was fine.
However, at work, using an HP printer, the Print Preview still appears fine, but pages print in wrong sequence; with some printing 2-sided and others single-sided, although the content for each page appears correctly on the printed sheet.
If I save the file as a PDF, the pages are correctly ordered, and print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets as intended.
(OS is Windows 10)
I've created as 5 worksheets to allow flexibility of use with the document... Worksheet 1, for example will only ever need to be saved as a 2-page PDF; sometimes only 2 or 3 of the worksheets need to be printed, and other times all sheets need to be printed.

Is the Excel file somehow retaining some of the printer profile from when it was originally created which is conflicting with a different printer profile? or is there a simpler explanation.

Any help gratefully accepted... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem and wasted hundreds of sheets of paper!

Now the printer is properly connected as he responds to any other software and prints from different commands i give from the computer. In fact by doing all this i found out a lot of things i can do with the printer, cleaning it etc. so the printer is connected. But Easy-PhotoPrint does not see him and therefore refused to open. It gives only one option to click OK. no way to somehow play around and find out where the problem is, not even help does work. What to do?

First time on the forum.

Our network administrator just updated my HP T9500 2.6 Ghz laptop to Win 7 w/ 8GB memory. Two questions.

1) the print dialog box opens and but stays in the background. If you have many windows open you don't even notice it pops up. How do you make the print dialog box to come to the foreground by default?
2) I miss the feature in my XP Pro windows explorer where I can add features such as "cut", "paste", "copy", on the menu bar. Can you do the same in Win 7?

So this may seem like a weird question. I use a web based service that allows me to put together reports, forms, etc. I can select various forms and then click a print button and the bottom of the screen which spools the print jobs to my printer. The only problem is that I often need to print out 30,40, or 50 reports and since IE 6, a separate printer dialog box comes up for each report. I guess they are all sent as individual print jobs... can anyone think of anyway around this, either spooling all into one big print job to then be printed or a way to bypass the printer dialog box?

I have a client running WinXP sp3 and has an issue with PDF's:

Running Adobe Reader 9 he can open any PDF file without any problems, but when he attempts to print the thing it takes (minimum) over a minute for the Windows Print Dialog Box to come up. The document prints just fine from that point, it's just getting to that point...

I tried uninstalling, re-installing, running the Adobe repair option - nothing helped.

Drastic measure: I had him install Foxit Reader - Same results!

He can print any other files without a problem - just not PDF's.

I work at a public library and am in charge of updating and maintaining our technology. We have over 20 public access computers that are open to our patrons which they can use to print documents, amongst other things. We have a Xerox Workcentre 6605 and use CASSIE, software from Librarica, to control printing. Patrons need to print from their computer, click a confirmation box, and then ask the staff at the desk to release the prints from our manager computer.
Ever since updating to Reader 11, I occasionally see a print dialog pop up when printing a PDF that says the following:
"The default settings in Adobe Reader 11 may cause a color shift when printing PDF files. In addition, some black and white PDF documents may be printed using color and black inks and may be billed as color pages. [I assume this has something do with CASSIE, which determines the charges per print based on the ink color??]
Before you continue printing, Xerox recommends that you change Reader 11 to allow the printer to manage colors.
To change the Reader 11 setting, close this dialog box, click the 'Advanced' button at the bottom of the Print window, and check the option 'Let printer determine colors.'"
There are a couple of options available to our patrons at this point, including "Send my document anyway" and "Don't show this message again." Whatever option is set as the default sends documents as blank pages. Most of our patrons don't know what option to pick so... Read more

I moved 2 Pc's and 2 Printers to a new location and added both printers to the PC that would be left on the most so they could print to the HP LJ1022NW or the HP Photosmart C3180.

This PC was originally connected directly to the C3180 and could print fine to the LJ1022 when is was connected to another PC and shared.

Once LJ1022 was installed on this main PC thats when the Print box went slow. I print alot of PDF documents and I also print from a database. these 2 take about 2 miniutes just to load the print dialog box.

So i uninstalled the printer and set it up again on the orther PC and shared it. but it made no difference. Printing in word seems to be fine.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Since I am new to the forum, I'm not sure where my problem should be posted. I am also not sure if it is a hardware or software related problem, but here it is.

Suddenly, when I try to print, the print properties dialog window does not appear when i click on the properties button. It tries to activate, but immediately reverts back to the print window. This occurs in both OpenOffice 4.1.1 and LibreOffice 4.3, both of which have previously worked fine for months. I often print to both sides of the page (echo print), but can only print on one side (default) since I cannot change the properties. The only thing I can recall that might have any bearing on the problem is that I had previously printed to a file - something I rarely do. I checked the settings and "print to file" is not selected. I am printing to a HP LaserJet Pro M1530 MFP series PCL6 printer and am using Windows 8.1 operating system. I have tried reinstalling both word processing programs and have reset the printer to default settings and updated.

If anyone can help with this problem, I would greatly appreciate your help.

A:Print properties dialog window does not appear

Printers can be very frustrating to say the least. When I've had printer problems in the past, this is what has worked for me:

1. Unplug the power to the printer
2. Wait about 30 seconds or so
3. Plug it in and let it go through it's initialization
4. Then try it again

If that doesn't work, try reloading the printer driver from the HP site. If it still doesn't work, try a system restore back to the last time the printer was working successfully. That's about all the tricks I know for printers. Hope it helps ...

I have 23 "printers" in my Windows XP print dialog window, only eight of which I actually use on any regular basis. The rest just clutter up the dialog and make it inconvenient to find and select the one I want to use. I have uninstalled all the printers I know for sure I will never use again. The 23 remaining are still there because either, 1) There is a good chance I'll use them again at some point (e.g. the printer at my mother's house, where I visit with my laptop about twice a year), 2) They are "internal" printers installed by some software I still use (e.g. "Intuit Internal Printer"), or 3) I don't know what they are and I'm concerned I'll screw something up if I just arbitrarily uninstall them (e.g. "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" and "Send to OneNote 2007")

Is there any way I can tell Windows to "hide" the un-wanted printers from the print dialog box, without actually un-installing them, in such a way that I could sometime in the future "un-hide" them?

A Google search turned up a very nice system settings option for the Mac OS X, but nothing for Windows. Any ideas?

Hi all,

I work at my local library and recently we have been having issues on several systems. Mainly WinXP Pro systems, but some Win2k pro systems have exhibited this issue too.

In Internet Explorer, when you go to file - print, the print dialog comes up. Sometimes it will show one or the other. It is very random. I have tried reinstalling the printer drivers / reinstall IE etc. I have run the IE general purpose fix at http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFIX.htm. Also did a sfc /scan now, as well as full spyware/virus scans to be safe.

Installed latest java runtime environments, all latest updates, IE 6.0, SP2 etc. Disable script debugging is checked in IE advanced.

File - Print will result in one of the two dialog boxes. See below:

I have tried using Firefox and I get problems randomly too. Instead of a script error, I get a "printing failed when starting the document."

Is there any way to force it to show the correct print dialog? (registry, policy editor?)

One thing I have noticed is that if you click the print button (icon), it will consistently work and print fine. However you can't choose which pages you want since it will print the whole page.

We do use third-party software that controls some printing functions. I have talked to them about this issue and we tried some things but with no success. They told me that since I am able to print from the print button fine, but not consistently with file-print, then the issue is with IE/W... Read more

I have a 40 page document, and the last 20 pages are all images--- none of which I need for this part of my work.
I only need ten pages, from the middle of the document.
I've tried printing several times, and it's not happening. I went and got our IT mgr, and he wasn't able to get it either. So, we finally printed the whole document.

I just spoke with our Doc. Control person, and she's never heard of this either, and has never had this problem.

While the company doesn't appear to be bothered wasting paper, it seems odd that this is happening, because I'd never had it happen before. I've always been able to print any range of pages within a document.

As this is a facility where we regularly have documents upwards of 200-400 pages, having this issue is not a productive one. Does anyone have any ideas?

We are opening the IE print preview object on button click using 
    "<object id=\"idWBPrint\" width=0 height=0 \

and want to resize my actual DOM element based on the page preferences selected. 
I'm trying to access the callbacks for events like onchange, onmousemove on the print preview object
so as to resize my DOM element and put it back for printing.

I have been trying to setup a postscript printer on port "File:" so I can print anything from a webpage to a file for running through Acrobat 8 Distiller. When I first install the print to file, it works fine until I reboot the computer. Every time I print to this printer after the reboot, I get a pop-up box titled "Local Port" with the message "Cannot Print to File: Access Denied". I gather it is a permission problem of some sort as I can log onto the Administrator user-id and it prints to file fine. Any ideas on what permissions I need to set this printer to in order for it to work under a standard user-id?

Using Windows Vista Ultimate X64.

I have given up finding a solution to the problem. I no longer use Adobe Acrobat Professional full as I have tried both updates 8.0.1 & 8.0.2 to no avail, and is now unsupported as Adobe is up to version 9 of this software. I have opted for a freeware solution, so I have uninstalled Adobe Acrobat Professional and installed the freeware CUTEPDF Writer at www.cutepdf.com. It works beautifully on Vista X64 on all documents, including Microsoft Word and Scanned Images and Photos. I'm very happy with the results.

Running W8 Pro, with all applicable updates, and Office 2013 Pro.
I have had to (twice) delete a network printer that has somehow been allocated an incorrect IP. Then re-install it. While the deleted printer does not appear in "Devices and Printers", two instances do in the Word 2013 print dialog. Both show a file waiting to be printed. This doesn't appear to cause any printing issues. It prevents me re-allocating the name I had used as I wish to do.
I have found many registry keys/values associated with the deleted printer(s), but do not know whether it is safe to delete them. I know I can export them, (and import if deleting causes a problem), but wondered if someone else has experienced this issue, and found a fix.

Printing was working correctly for me until today.

This morning I installed Windows Update KB2753842. After that, I could not longer print. This might be coincidental, but it is the only thing that I can think of that has changed since I was able to print.

Now, when I try to print I get the 'Save Print Output As' wizard, prompting me to save to a file. This happens even though the previous Print wizard screen has the 'Print to file' choice unticked.

Any suggestions for fixing this?

Sounds like your default printer changed to the XPS printer. Go into Control Panel and check what the default printer is.

HI there,
I need to upload a few image files to attachments to email and also on other sites such.
When i am taken to the 'open' dialog box to select a file to be uploaded with all the files on my folder, there is no other search options. 
When I type in the approximate file name within the 'file name' bar, all the other files that share parts of the same name appear on a drop down menu, but it's only the file name.
Compared to this, I have vista running at home, where there is a search bar on the 'open' dialog box at the upper-right corner. When I want to select one file out of many similarly named image file, i run a quick search there, whittle it down to those file names -- and then because I have thumbnail mode activated, pick the correct file from the search results. 
IS there any way I can do this on XP? 
thank you so much.
