Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Not printing from computer, but printer works when I'm just making a copy


Answers :

Goto:

start, control panel, select view classic settings(if you cannot see a printer icon), double click the printer icon, set your current printer as the default from the list. your printer must be plugged into the computer for this to work.

also, depending on the model number, you didn't say, you should download the driver and program package from the website for your model number, if you do not have the disc that came with it anymore. there are drivers you need for everything to function properly.
