    Printing with windows!

    Asking this for my parents..not in front of her PC, so not 100% sure I can help her..I dont have windows 8.

    She has a new computer with windows 8 built in. Also has a new printer, an Epson WF2530, multi.

    She has installed the printer..but is at a total loss as to how to print something, like when in an email, PRINT option shows up? She has tried to right click and nothing comes up with printer. Somone mentioned using CONTROL P, but not sure if that worked.
    Any ideas? What are we (she) missing. They are NOT very computer literate, and I wont be near her coputer for about 2 more weeks.
    Thanks for any help!

    Can't really do much unless we can plant you in front of it. But the "Print" command usually pops up when you right click in the BODY of the email you want to print. I imagine it works the same way from the other Metro apps, right click to bring up the bar across the bottom:
