Installed a HP ENVY 4520 for my Dads new HP 260-a129. He is 87 so it all has to be simple.
Installation of printer excellent. Great little PC. Perfect for my father.
Whats annoying me is that when I went to show him how he can simply print something from HP SMART ... it is only showing (from) Print Documents, PDF documents. All files shows *.pdf
I can print word documents (doc or docx) from windows explorer or Word but from HP SMART it seems to be thinking that the only documents to print are PDF.
Is this a known bug? From searching it seems the previous problem was not finding pdf documents from Print Documents. You fixed that but broke all the others. Print documents should include .doc .txt .ppt xls etc etc

BTW ... I realize this is not a bad install on just this one PC. On another PC recently installed with a new HP Printer HPSMART > Print Document has the same issue. Should be pretty easy for you to check out internally, without me getting on a call to support. Here is a picture from my PC that shows all files limits the displayed content to *pdf. If you type in *.* and try to print, it says wrong format, incomaptible. I won't be calling in. Please pass this to your QA team to validate. Thanks

Thank you for your reply, I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP.
They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number.
Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact.
Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

No solution to my knowledge. Sorry, I abandoned pursuing it to tell you the truth. HP seemed oblivious to recreating the issue in-house. They wanted all sorts of information that did not pertain to the problem.
It's obvious what happened here (to me at least)... previous problem was that it wasn't seeing pdf files. Fixed that by only seeing PDF files ... changed ALL files so it pulls up *.pdf.
Thanks though for validating it is an issue not just for me.
You can print from Windows Explorer. Right click the file > print.
