Windows 7: Printing multiple files of different file type

Printing multiple files of different file type

In Windows XP, Explorer I was able to select multiple files of different file types, right click and select print. In Win 7 64 bit print is not a choice when I select multiple files of different types. Is there a way to make this work or is it just an option that was left out of Win 7 for some reason?

You could try creating a shortcut to the printer in the 'Send To' folder:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo.

You'll likely have to unhide hidden files and/or show Operating system files:

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

I think that should work, although I haven't tried it myself. This places the printer in the Send To (right click) context menu. You just right click on the selected files, choose Send To, choose the printer.

Thanks James. Nice idea but it didn't work.

Ah well. That was my only idea. Perhaps someone else will respond.
