I am trying to print but saving as prn file.

Specs: Windows XP

I am trying to print a form online but instead of printing is ask if I want to save. Once saved it is a .prn file and I am not able to open or print. What do I need to do to be able to print directly to my printer?

can you provide a link to this file?
what is set as your default printer?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

No I am not able to add a link. It goes straight to a .prn file.

Somewhere in the 1st Print dialogue box from the HP OfficeJet, Print to file is checked. UN-check it, and the rest of the process will be "normal".

Seems like perhaps the Print to file is set as a default in your OfficeJet printer. Go to Printers and Faxes, right-clk the OfficeJet printer (default?), select Properties, and under the Ports tab, make sure the □ FILE: Print to file is UN-checked, that the listed OfficeJet printer is set (I'm guessing) to use ■ USB: Virtual printer port for USB by "checking" it, click Apply, then OK.
