Windows 7: SEND TO option for printer not working

SEND TO option for printer not working

I located the SEND TO folder, and deleted the fax option, and added a folder I wanted. Both of thes options appear in the send to options list when I right click, and the folder works that I added. After searching the internet the only help I found for adding my default printer, HP 8600, like I did in Win XP told me what I alredy knew.

So i opened the DEND TO folder and Dragged/Dropped the Default Printer into the folder and created a shortcut there. So far so good. The printer option appears in the FOLDER, but does not appear as an option when one right-clicks on a doc. I tried a reboot of the system, but it remains the same.

How can I get the printer option to appear/work from the SEND TO option list when I rightclick on a doc????

I added shortcut for my default printer to the SendTo folder and get same result as you did. Even though it is in the folder it does not show when you right-mouse access the SendTo menu.

But of course when I review my list of documents in windows explorer I can right mouse click on any individual document and there is a print option available in the menu that appears and prints direct to the printer.

You probably know that but I don't understand what the advantage of having access to printer via the SendTo menu has?
