Hi and welcome to SevenForums!

I don't have a printer installed so I decided to test what happens if I try that myself. Same as you, nothing happens. So maybe your printer isn't recognized or installed properly?!

Here's a page that lists 4 scenarios why it might not work: Unable to print or view the print preview of a webpage in Internet Explorer

It's not a printer driver issue.

Thanks for your post. But even if i install the right driver it doesn't work. There is something serious wrong. I've run the browser without any add-ons, still no luck. Reinstalled IE 11 still no luck.

But when i install freshly that is if i install Windows 7 and immediately install IE 11 it works fine. But i install some local systems and then install IE11 it doesn't work. I have around a 200+ PC's and i cannot expect to do this.
