Windows 7: problem printing puzzle using Acrobat Reader

problem printing puzzle using Acrobat Reader

I've been printing crossword puzzles from oregonlive.com for over a year. Recently, when I follow the traditional method for printing the puzzle, I click the print button and instead of printing the puzzle the "save as" pop up box appears instead and I can't print the puzzle. I called Adobe tech support and they suggested it was a problem with the Windows folder (can't remember which one). Might anyone here have any idea of what might be going on here and how I can remedy the problem?? Using Windows 7 64 bit. Thanks.

Hello Augusta, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the tutorial below as a guide to help double check to make sure that your printer is set as the default printer. It sounds like you have it set to print to a file instead.

Microsoft XPS Document Writer - Print to XPS File

Hope this helps,

Feel like a fool, but you were correct Shawn, I did have it set to print to file. Thanks so much for your solution.
