Print Screen Button Printing To Printer - How To Stop
May 29, 2014
I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1
It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?
Printing was working correctly for me until today.
This morning I installed Windows Update KB2753842. After that, I could not longer print. This might be coincidental, but it is the only thing that I can think of that has changed since I was able to print.
Now, when I try to print I get the 'Save Print Output As' wizard, prompting me to save to a file. This happens even though the previous Print wizard screen has the 'Print to file' choice unticked.
I have installed windows 8 consumer preview.I have also installed my printer drivers and they installed correctly, but problem is that my printer can't print anything(test page also).My printer is HP Laser-jet 1020.
I've once again encountered this problem with my Canon PIXMA MP620 printer/scanner: when using it wirelessly, it can't print. According to 'Devices And Printers', it's offline and therefore most programs I use in Windows 8.1 claim it can't print.
However, using Canon's program 'MP Navigator', it can scan from the printer without any problems. I can scan from the computer to the printer and the other way around. Therefore I'm suspecting that the problems lies with Windows 8.1 and not the printer. The connection is obviously there but Windows doesn't seem to think so.
I can't find a solution in the printer's manual, Windows doesn't give me anything when I try to troubleshoot the printer in question, and Canon's own 'Network IJ Tool' can find the printer but says it's doesn't work without clarifying why.
I have a home network with an XP system with a printer attached and shared. A Windows 7 laptop and my old XP laptop from work can print fine, but a new Windows 8 laptop won't print. Sharing from the XP system works as I can read files from the XP system on the new Windows 8 system. When I do an Add Printer on the Windows 8 laptop, I can see the network printer and install it and the driver so the printer shows up as installed on the Windows 8 system. The Print Test Page does not work nor printing from WordPad. I turned off the Firewall on the XP system in case that was the problem.
I was able to print to my network-attached Brother 2070N and 3045CN laser printers until recently. Driver have been loaded, printers are discovered and added to the client, but every time I try to print I receive the message "Printer not ready". All of the Windows 7 clients can print to these 2 printers, it's just my 64bit Windows 8.1 Enterprise computer that cannot. If I can't get this resolved soon, I'll have to go back to Win7.
In continuation to my previous thread on this subject, I now have another network printer problem in the same system. I chose to open it in a separate thread because the previous one became too long.I have 3 PCs on my home network
1. Windows XP (SP3) desktop with HP6500 E709a USB printer.
2. Windows 7 (Ultimate SP1 64 bit) desktop with HP 1018 USB printer.
3. Windows 8 (64 bit) laptop.
All computers can see each other and share folders on the home network.
Computers 1 & 2 can freely print on their own printers, as well as on each other's printer. Computer 3 (Windows 8) can print on the HP6500 (which is connected to the XP computer), but cannot print on the 1018 printer connected to the Win7 computer.
I know that on the Windows 8 laptop I have to define a local port for the network printer, but when I try to do it I get "Access denied" error message. Win7 denies access from Windows 8. This is strange, because Win7 does allow access to XP. On the WIN7 computer, under printer properties/security, print permission is granted to "Everyone".
So what could be the reason for the "Access denied" error? I guess it has to do with security / users / permissions, but I cannot find a solution.
I have a Canon printer-fax and several other printers installed. Listing printers shows the Canon as one printer, both the fax and printer and when I click on it, I have a choice of either the printer or fax. I chose the printer as my default printer. That works for a while, and then the default printer reverts to the last one on my list, in my case Quicken PDF. There does not seem to be any event causing this to change.
How can I keep my selected printer as the default?
I Google a subject and get a list of sites, select one and read. To return to the list I click the back-button, the screen goes blank and I have to press the 'windows' key and select Google again which brings the list back on screen. Frustrating waste of time. How can I activate the back-button?
This started happening just recently & I think it was after a Windows update.
Every time I want to copy or move a file using the select location link, the copy/move window that opens is always below the task bar (or below the screen if I have task bar set to auto hide). In either case I cannot click the move or copy button before first moving the window up. It may seem like a small thing but I do this operation a lot & it is very annoying having to do that extra step.
How to get rid yourself of the touch screen keyboard symbol in the bottom toolbar have tried several ideas but after restart this still appears, my reason for wanting to rid myself of this is I don`t have a touch screen so is of no use
My win 8.1 pops out the Start menu bar (dunno what it's officially called but it is a vertical bar with Search, Share, Start, Device, and Setting) when I scroll the right edge of my touchpad (Dell inspiron), and if I tap on the mouse it flips right to the Start screen. I see Microsoft is really doing everything they can to get the users to the Start screen. But this is really annoying because I have no business in the Start screen, unfortunately. i never go there and never will.
I turned on my laptop and after I logged on all my letters were replaced with symbols. I then restarted my laptop and now even my log in screen is symbols and when I get to the desktop my screen just keeps flashing and I can't click on anything. It just keeps flashing and loading nothing. I can't do anything on it. I didn't install anything the last time it was on either and I'm the only person who uses the laptop.
I'm getting confused about the new start button that was supposedly to come with the Win 8.1 update. I cant' find anything different from Win 8. Is the start button the icon found in the lower left corner of the screen?...or on my computer keyboard?...it looks like a window. I was expecting that I would get a dropdown start menu with Win 8.1 like I get with Win 7 when I click on that button. I would really like to have the Win 7 dropdown start menu when I click on that button in 8.1.
I'm having to use a dark high contrast theme because when I look at normally it makes my eyes want to burn and I don't mean that sarcastically I mean that seriously my eyes start feeling like their burning when I'm staring at a screen that is so bright. So I've used the Microsoft high contrast black theme to make using my computer easier on my eyes however I'm experiencing a problem when I need to go and print something.
I'm printing out documents that are displayed in Internet Explorer and the problem is that the printed document comes out very faded almost as if the contrast is greatly reduced.And on the contrary, if I use the Microsoft high contrast white theme than the documents that I print from Internet Explorer come out printed very well with the same printer settings and all.
Is there anyway I can correct this short of having to use the high contrast white theme which just makes my eyes burn even more?
I am struggling to get the right size page like A4 when printing specific stuff, I just don't seem to get it right, what I want to do is = put some text on a page and put some pictures onto the same page as I am using a special paper and don't want to make any more mistakes as it is expensive ive printed previously on normal A4 plain paper i have wasted tons so i want text, pictures together on the same sheet not spread all over the sheet. I have used the printer properties etc
every time my grandfather tries to print to our HP Photosmart eStation c510 (connected wireless) it cancels mid printing and reports error printing. that's only when he tries to print double sided, if he uses single sided and flips the page it works fine
When I download a pdf file from a an email in my Gmail account that is using chrome I get a screen shot in Windows 8 with all black and the pdf displayed . However I cannot find a way to print it out. The circles offered at the bottom say two pages, one page, open, save as, or more but no ability to print. The document in the middle of window is very clear to read. but I cannot print it out.
I got a new computer but this HP printer does not have drivers for widows 8. (and don't have $100.00 to replace it yet). so I need to move this email to this pocket USB hard drive thing so I can take it to the XP computer. Once there I've got it made as I've been using XP for years and can do everything I need. I just need to move this email.
I have network and printer connection problems. I need to ask some basic questions before giving details.
Using new Sagemcom F@st 1704N combo modem/router (replacing an old fried Sagemcom 4300 single function modem) wired to a previously used Linksys/Cisco 610N router which was, and is wired to 3 WAPs in more remote locations.
Are these assumptions correct?
1 The new network SSID is coming from the 1704 combination modem router.
2 The old network SSID is broadcast by the remote WAPs, but not by the old 610N device.
3 Can a network printer (Brother MFC-8810 DW wireless network device) be configured to work with 2 or more wireless networks at the same time.
4 As a workaround is it it possible to configure a Windows 8.1 laptop computer using Bluetooth to connect to the router and printer.
My boss formerly had Windows XP installed on her computer. She downloaded Windows 8, just recently. Additionally, she downloaded the new Office, so it may not be a Windows problem. But none of her documents are printing properly. They look fine on the print screen, but they all come out with asymmetrical margins. We have tried moving the margins, but they still print with a larger left margin.
I have been trying to print web pages but all I get is the Page 1 of _ on the top and the file name and date on the bottom. The rest of the sheet is blank. I have no problem printing excel documents, just web pages.
