Windows 7: Documents, various programs, randomly print 8 copies

If you go to Devices and Printers in Control Panel and right click on your printer, you should be able to select Properties. There should be a Ports tab. That's where that option is. Are the printers connected by USB?

One printer is wireless for certain and I'm not sure if her primary HP is setup wireless or using her USB.


I think we can do a short cheer since I finally did find the d*mn port tab. I thought this bidirectional thing was a device you all were referring to ;-).


I unchecked same on both printers.


I printed a test from Notepad to both printers and a page from a worksheet. All single copies.


The acid test will be when Connie works in Quickbooks and Quicken the next few days.


I'll let you all know for certain.


Thanks for the patience!
