    Default Won't print, just saves..over & over!

    Anything I try to print eg: web page,word doc, e-mail, etc..wants to be saved. So I save it then try to print the saved item. Low and behold it wants to save again.

    Have a look under your printer tab and see if any are installed,If so then right click your printer and ensure it is set to defult printer.

    In XP it will in the control panel under Printers,in Win98 it will be under my compyer>printers.

    You havent got print to file ticked under the printer's preferences have u? When you go to print. Check if this is ticked.

    Setting/Printers and right click on the printer's icon. There might be a tick/no tick optioin there called "Work Offline".

    This can get set if the printer is not on when the system is booted. It doesn't get reset automatically.

    Thanks all, I found the problem(Metla). Somehow my hp was no longer the default. Something called "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer" was set as def. The problem is solved but how did it happen? Can or I do I need to get rid of it?

    If MS Office Document Image writer is in printers, delete it.
