    Unable to print from any browser in Windows 10 PRO


    When I try to print from any browser, I click on print and nothing happens. I can print from anywhere else with no problems. This problem started about 1 week ago. Nothing was added to my desktop.

    Do you get anything come up at all after pressing print?

    Nothing comes up as if I did not press the print button.

    Hi GUPPY. Welcome to the TenForums @GUPPY

    Know this sounds like crazy fix but have you tried re-installing printer. I saw that printer works outside the browsers.

    Not sure what version of Windows 10 you are using, if 1809 you could try an in place repair.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    I would backup all data although this is a non destructive process.

    If you are on an older version of Win 10, 1803 or earlier, this process will perform and upgrade unless you use boot media from your current version.

    Are you trying to print a general page from the browser or a printer page? Did you check to see if anything is going to the printer spool? If it is, it's likely a printer problem. Otherwise, the hangup is probably somewhere else.

    Unable to print from any browser in Windows 10 PRO


    I am using version 1809. I did not try to Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade yet.

    I usually try to print an attachment from an e-mail. Sometimes just a screen print.
    Nothing goes to the printer spool. When I click on print, nothing happens.

    The print option started working again. I did not do anything. Go figure.

    Best kind of fix... although you would probably like to know what caused it. A Windows Mystery.
