Standard Tool bar print button

  ray7 19:58 25 Jan 03

Since installing a new Printer (Epsom 830 photo) I am unable to print direct from the Print Button.

Instead, a drop down menu appears asking me to save the file. I don,t want to save anything....all I want to do is print whats on screen.. Any suggestions.

p.s. I am running W98

What program are you trying to print from?

Have you tried Control+P?

Try this, go into ...control panel...double click...printers. right click your printer, then you'll see a few choices, click..."use printer online".

Or, Hit, "Print Screen" on you keyboard, then paste into notepad

Sorry. No sign of 'use printer on line'

Print screen...nothing happens

does it show..."use printer offline" if it it.

I'm running Win98SE and a Lexmark and I've just pressed the Printer icon on the Internet Explorer tool bar and it works OK after about 30 seconds.
I think it just needs time to think about it when you're on the net.
Finished up with three pages of forum before I could stop it!

In my printer settings (File - Print - General) there is a Print to File box. If I tick it and apply it, and then select the Print button on the browser toolbar, it comes up with a box to save it. Couldn't be this, could it?

Wak..... tried as you suggested...waited but againmene screen appeared asking me to save. Waited again but got bored!
