    Microsoft Reader doesn't list printer - HELP


    Greetings all:

    When trying to print from Devices "charm" in Microsoft Reader, my default printer is not shown. It shows up in Printers on the desktop. Reader does show, however, a fax version of my printer, which is NOT installed. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer....no change.

    I'm using a HP Officejet 7310 printer, which has the most current driver, and works in all other Windows apps.

    I love Windows 8......

    Hmmm... interesting.

    Can you go into PC Settings, under Devices, to check to make sure the printer shows up?

    Right click at the bottom of the page to bring up printer.

    Thanks for the reply. When I go in through Devices and Printers, it does show up...and as the default printer. Should I uninstall and reinstall Reader?

    I'm not sure where you want me to right click. It does nothing in Reader. I don't have a problem printing in any other apps that generate a "Print" window.

    Neither of my installed printers show as default, in the Reader charms bar. But when I click "more", at the bottom of the list of printers, they show instantly. No problem, but surely a bug.

    All my pdf's are unencrypted, work with Adobe and several other readers on other computers.

    I get the bar at the bottom of the screen, but there is no Print button. I can set display properties, and if I hit the "More" button I can rotate and close.
