how to select my printer

January 12, 2020 at 01:33:58
Specs: Windows 10
After I have captured the part of the screen that I want to print , the program won't let me select my printer, but only shows print to PDF, which I don't want. This has only just started doing this. For many years it has sent the print to my regular HP printer. I can't find a way to stop it printing to PDF. Please help

Reinstall your printer.

If you go to Devices and Printers, select your printer, Manage Printer, Print Preferences you will see the default printing settings. Uncheck the "print to file" or Print to PDF", Apply, OK. and exit all. When you next print, look for the same box to make sure that it is not checked there for that application specifically. Uncheck if needed and print. Once this is done it should stay this way.

If this does not fix it, you may actually need to uninstall the printer (do not remove software if asked) then reinstall the printer through the Add Printer options.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm so grateful for this column. I'm also an HP printer user and recently, I face a very identical problem. I tried a few ways to solve it but got baffled. The data shared here by user Fingers really benefited me. Thanks for sharing.
