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?

Answer:Print Screen button will print to the printer! how to stop

By definition the print screen function only sends the image to the clipboard so if the printer is also involved then something else -- some other software installed on your machine -- is the culprit here.

One way to find out what it is is by unhooking the printer and then watching the screen to see what error messages pop up when trying to use the print screen function.

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out if there is an easy/quick way to get the Print Screen button to send the image automatically to the printer...not to the clipboard. I'm using Windows XP Professional.

I've been to Microsoft's site and cannot find an answer. One of my users tried to convince me he had done it earlier this week but he cannot replicate his efforts. Now I'm trying to replicate them.

Any ideas?

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.

Hello folks,
I am unsure exactly where to post this. But here goes. I am working on behalf of a very good Lady Friend who gets really nervous doing this sort of thing. Her problem is thus:
She claims that the "print screen" button does not work as it should...actually it simply does not work. I myself am familiar with the process of 'taking a snapshot' of the screen and then pasting into paint. It is at this point that the problem arises. Once she opens Paint and clicks the Edit Menu for the drop down, the word paste is grayed out. We tried Ctr-V also to no avail.
When hitting the Print Screen button, we tried doing it alone, with the Shift, Alt, and Control buttons.
The laptop she is using is a HP G60 that is but 2-3 years old I think. She has, as I do, Windows Vista.
I am concerned that the Print Screen button is the only key that does NOT work
Thank you very much for reading this and hope to hear from someone.

God Bless,
Charlie (aka Redfeennix)
 

Answer:Print Screen button

Hi,

I have seen several forum posts around the net that tell us for a solution to try pressing the Fn key along with the PrntScrn key to make the screen capture able to Paste into the Paint program.

One other way, and one you most likely are aware of, to Paste into Paint's window is to RIGHT-click in the empty space in Paint, and then click "Paste"- which, if Paste is greyed out that way, of course won't help you.....

Does using Ctrl+C and then, in Paint, using Ctrl+V work? Those are the commands same as Copy / Paste.

Or, a built into Vista tool that does things better!>>> How To Capture a Screen Shot with the Snipping Tool in Windows Vista / Windows 7

Answer:How To Use 'print Screen' Button?

When you press the Print Screen button, the computer saves a picture of your Desktop to the clipboard.
So, open up MS Paint, select the "Edit" menu, then select "Paste" and a picture of your Desktop will be pasted into the MS Paint program. You can then save that picture.

You can also select the current window by pressing the "Alt" key while pressing Print Screen. Then only the current window will be copied to the clipboard.

How do you click on a key on the keyboard? :confused

After you've pressed the Prt Scr key, open Paint and Paste the captured image into Paint. Then, you can edit, save, etc.

Pressing the Prt Scr key alone captures your entire display, i.e. what you see on your monitor. To capture just an open application that may opened in a window smaller than full screen, use Alt/Prt Scr.

I tried another keyboard the same problem. I uninstalled the keyboard in device manager,then rebooted but that didn't work either. I tried searching the Internet for a solution but had no luck there either.

Yet I used that function many times before. When I copy anything else, with Crl+v that works just fine. does anyone have a solution here?

Answer:Print screen button

Have you tried clicking the Paste icon in Paint if that is what you are trying to paste to?

You could also install a screen capture program and use it instead of Print Screen. I use Screenhunter Free.
It captures the screen without having to paste anything. It does have a learning curve but isn't to difficult to figure out.

e.g. the key between the AltG and Ctrl keys; WIndows key + S; Fn + F6  etc etc
 
Only one of them worked but partially with half a screen on a printable page (i.e. not something that offered a copy command either) but I don't have sophisticated graphic software to stitch together images on half a page.

Hi, I recently purchased a Canon IP4300 Printer and have been having some problems with the OEM Software that comes with the printer for printing directly on DVD/CDs, the software is very old, cumbersome, and doesn't allow for alot of adjustments of the inner hole size, my printable cd's have a larger surface then most and can be printed almost to the end of the middle hole, can anyone please suggest some better software, Thanks.
 

Answer:Software to Print Directly on DVD's

Is your printer willing to print from the "wrong" apps? For example, even though you may not yet have a way to position it, could you print from a non-cd related app onto a cd even if it does it incorrectly? If so, you might consider simply doing some measurements and creating your own template/s. If it sees a CD as if it were paper of a particular size, it might even turn out to be pretty easy to do.

How do I print directly to a printer over the internet - with no PC connected?

I've done lots of research and the only answer seems to be HP 'ePrint' enabled printers

I wanted to know why no other manufacturers had been able to achieve the same?
I think I'm right in saying that HP have had this technology for 2/3 years now

I'm not sure if it's been an over night success... but it's a great thing to have

It's something I'd really need to do - but I'd rather have some choice at least
(My preference is always to use Canon)

ALSO: if anyone has used ePrint before... can someone confirm if you can actually print directly from the internet - say for example if sent from a specific email address (as opposed to having a special software that sits on your sending device) - the bit I'm not sure about is how they stop spammers sending email that gets printed!

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

Answer:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Hello!

On most computers I've found that the Print Scrn button copies the screen image to the clipboard, which can then be pasted into a new image file through most image programs (Photoshop, etc). However, my current computer does not do this. When I open a new image file in Photoshop and hit "Ctrl+V" it pastes whatever I copied before hitting Pring Scrn. Is there some sort of keyboard setting that can change the function of this button? I tried looking at the keyboard properties through Device Manager but there were not any options for key settings.

I'm running Windows 2000 and a "Microsoft Internet Keyboard."

Minor issue, but I'd like to fix it if possible.

Thanks!

Usually, there is no "Print" button on the keyboard. That used to be a keyboard function but hasn't been for a long time even on keyboards with a "Print" button. The Print function is accessed from the individual programs. e.g. in Internet Explorer (and most Windows type programs) either from a print icon or from File/Print.

I'm curious about this option, and I'm not having any luck finding detailed documentation on it. I think what it does is that it tells the clients to print directly to the printer from their own spool, bypassing the server. Which would be exactly what I'm after, but I can't find confirmation on this behavior.

Can anyone give me some details?

My laptop Equium M40X has suddenly decided to stop allowing me to print, giving me the message "Operation not completed. print spooler service not running". I get this message even when trying to install the print drivers that were originally installed.

To resolve this issue I have gone into the services.msc to try and start the print spooler but the command is not present there and seems to be missing. I have also tried to start this by clicking the start and then run and typing "net start spooler" but again this does not work. Can anyone help on this matter?

My laptop is an Equium M40X and the operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Answer:Equium M40X: Cannot print - Operation not completed. Print spooler service not running

Hi

This error occurs because the Spooler service has not been started or has stopped working.
It seems that this error message is known to the Microsoft and they decided to public an knowledge base article which could helps solving this issue.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314876

As you said the Spooler service must be started again.
To start the Spooler service, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
3. Double-click the Printer Spooler service, and then change the startup type to Automatic. This sets the Spooler service to start automatically when you restart the computer.
4. If you want to start the spooler service immediately, click the Start button under the Service Status field

If you will be not able to restart the Spooler service, you could try to restore the Windows OS to the early point using the Windows System restore tool.

I have an HP C5280 printer running wirelessly via a TP Link wireless print server and D Link Di 624 wireless router. I can print successfully from either my desktop (which is connected direct to the D Link router) or either of my laptops (wireless). However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

Hello to all!

It has been a while since this problem first occurred. Now it has become unbearable. When I try to print, use print preview or enter page setup, Microsoft Word 2003 freezes. The same thing also happens with other Office 2003 programs like Microsoft Excel 2003.

I am not sure if there is a problem with my printer driver (the printer is an HP L2600n by the way) as I have reinstalled it many times AND I have no problem using it as a network printer and can print the same word documents FINE from laptops or other desktop computers in the house. Thus I know that the documents aren't corrupted. I can also print .pdf documents fine from this computer. I think this problem started when my laser printer driver 'disappeared' and when I tried to reinstall it I got a spool-related error. I reinstalled the spool driver and then when I tried to print a .doc file I was unable to do so. The problem may most likely be linked to Office 2003 itself but I have tried options like deleting the data key and renaming the normal.dot template, all which have failed to alleviate the problem.

I think that is all the information I can offer to assist anyone trying to help me with this matter, and I hope that the problem can be fixed without me having to reformat or something like that.

Thank you in advance.

P.S Not sure if this will also come in handy but my OS is Windows XP Professional SP2.

Just migrated our office to a new Server 2012R2 Print server. about a dozen printers installed via GPO to Windows 7/64 workstations. Mostly HP's running Universal PS driver (6.1), plus the odd Kip plotter and Xerox Copier.   For maybe 4 users
out of 30 some, there is a printing problem. When a print job is sent, it appears in the queue and then is immediately deleted.   No other indication that anything is amiss. No events fire, no dimming of the icons or exclamation points,
 no error messages.
 That's the consistent part. There is also some inconsistent (but still bad) behavior I'm finding on the different PCs. For some, deleting and re-running gpupdate will  bring the printers back and printing properly, but only for a short time. Sometimes
only one or two printers will print, sometimes not. Sometimes logging in as a different user will install the printers, sometimes no.
 I've been fiddling with this over the past few days and gotten absolutely no where.  Now I don't know what to look at next. Any idea would be appreciated!

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.
HEEEEyyyUUULLPP!!!

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right forum, so my apologies in advance if it's in the wrong place.

I have 2 printers connected 2 a win98 Dell PC and have 2 XP Dell laptops that use the printers. I have had an HP laserjet 5MP and an HP color inkjet 1100 connected to it. The spool time to the 5MP has been normal. When I connected the HP 1100 a year ago, the spool time was very slow and it took a long time to get the print dialogue box to open, but I (ignorantly!) assumed it was the printer and since I don't use it often, just didn't deal with it. I just replaced the 5MP with a HP laserjet 2420 and it is slow, slow, slow to spool, to open a print menu, to open print properties, etc. When I turn print sharing off, it both printers print fine. I'm wondering if the win98 machine just doesn't have the processing speed necessary, but before I buy a print server or get an XP desktop to connect the printers to, thought I'd try to get some insight into the problem.

Thanks for any help!

Greetings,

Nothing has changed on the printer. We have a brand new 2008 R2 x64 server loaded with both x84 and x64 drivers on the same printer queue for a Lexmark X340. All the workstations are Windows XP (x86). Half of the users experience the problem where they print something, but they have to also physically go over to the printer and press the green button to get it to actually for-real print their job. Temporary work-around is to add a local print queue to each workstation using the IP address of the printer (rather than printing to a queue existing on the Windows server).

I will try setting the print processor on the queue to [FF Auto] to see how that makes a difference.. but in the mean time: discussion and solution-seeking. I have Googled this and found that this problem is experienced by many people regardless of what printer they have. The funny thing here is that only half of the workstations here are experiencing this problem.
 

Answer:Must press green button on printer to print

Have you set any default settings on the server side print queue? Have you verified your workstations are seeing the settings properly?

I haven't ever experienced this, but I tend to stick with HP, Xerox and Lanier ( which are fairly well behaved ).

Hello Harold, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure that you have the native screen resolution set for your monitor. Next double check to make sure that you still have the display DPI settings set to the default 96 DPI. The larger the %, the larger everything will appear in Windows 7 that would leave windows cut off like that.

OK, this one is a twist on a very often reported problem on these forums:

Internet Explorer 11 will not print and just shows an empty print preview page. (Edge works/prints fine).

However in this case I know what caused the issue but not how to resolve it. This issue CANNOT be repaired by the commonly offered 3 or 4 step Microsoft tips that are all over this site and elsewhere (disable protected mode, Low folder permissions, etc, etc,)

In that configuration it did NOT break the print functions in XP's IE 6 or 7.

Help getting & installing a compatable driver for new Photosmart 7520.

Need to have 'Print Preview' in Printer Preferences. Newer Photosmart Printers have very few options under Preferences.

Have tried drivers for Office Jet 6100 & Deskjet 69800 as suggested in HP forums. Neither has 'Print Preview' in Printing Preferences.

My previous Photosmart C310 died, bought the 7520 as a replacement. If I remember correctly, when I upgraded to Windows 7 with the older Photosmart C310 I had to download an alternate driver.

Thanks for any help

Answer:Print Preview not working (select pics/right click to print)

Some information would be helpful:
System Specs
Printer make/model and driver info/version/connection type(usb wireless etc..)
