How to add 'Print' to Win7 Explorer context menu

How can I add the 'Print' command to a right-click context menu for Word and Excel files (.doc and .xls)? It's missing for both. Thanks so much.

The answer's probably here already, but I didn't find it. Sorry.

Not clear on your problem because your subject heading refers to Windows Explorer, not Word --- but your question seems to appy to Word and Excel. So, are you trying to add a command to your Windows Explorer context menu when you right-click on Word/Excel files?????

You might take a look at these 3rd party apps -
Right Click Enhancer: applies specifically to Windows Explorer - Right Click Enhancer - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

Dear Imperfect1,

Print command for contextual menus of Word and Excel files comes with default Office installation.
Frapper does not need to add anything, but just to repair existing Office installation.

Control Panel - Programs and Features - Highlight Microsoft Office 2010 or whatever Office edition is there and click CHANGE button.
When new window will should up - select REPAIR option.

Yes. Somehow the post ended up in the "MS Office" forum, rather than "Win7 Help & Support". I'll try the utilities you suggested, as well as the repair Neutron16 suggested. It's a new install of MS Office 2003. Thanks guys.

Please, can anyone tell me, if there is a third party utility, that allows to add missing icons for basic commands such as cut/paste/move/copy/delete in the context menu? I couldn't find anything on internet. I don't understand why the Microsoft programmers didn't do this. Thank you very much ...
