Can anyone shed any light on why, all of a sudden, when I want to print something (like an online recipe, or an email) does my computer want me to "save" it before it will print it? I have to save it someplace, give it a name, then go back to where I saved it, and THEN print it. It just started this crap 2 or 3 weeks ago. I have changed nothing. It's a PITA that the little box that I could click that said "print" is no longer available for me to do that. Grrrr...............

Have you tried right clicking, and using that print function? For example, if I wanted to print your post, I just put my cursor on your post above and press the right button on my mouse. Cheers!

I excel at cursive, but I wanted to AVOID having to write out recipes, etc.

sadly I have found that cursive is faster than trying to make the dumb thing work. With recipes I just take a photo and make it using that. If it turns out and I want to actually keep the recipe, THEN I write it out by hand on a card. I finally gave up on my printer about 3 years ago and didn't get another one. Its just as easy to save all of what I need to print, transfer it to a stick and take it to the library once in a while to print. I drive by there anyway, it only costs 10 cents a page, and I don't have to mess ink, paper, make believe paper jams, or any of that nonsense anymore. I rather LOVED dumping it in the trash can, made me feel big and in charge nodding

Anna can you make a text folder on your home screen? Copy and paste the recipe and see if it will print from there.

Another thing you can try is to unplug your printer for a few minutes the plug it back in...restart your computer, it may help.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I just got an attachement that I needed to print. I right clicked on it, then clicked on "print". Then that frickin' print screen came up where I had to SAVE it, it will NOT let me print like it used to. Stupid piece of crap.............I don't want to have to save everything before I can print it. Just dumb. Grumbling Grumbling
