Printing preview not showing before print starts

Although I have the print preview checked, the preview does not show before printing starts; nor does the 'Start Printing/'Cancel printing' box appear. The printing just starts.

Re: Printing preview not showing before print starts

What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth? What application are you printing from?  Do you have the "Print Preview" box checked in the driver settings?

Re: Printing preview not showing before print starts



I've posted a similar problem as recently as yesterday. The only question of yours that I haven't adrressed is that my printer is connected by USB.


There seem to be a number of HP printer customers with a similar problem and I would suspect there is a software issue here.
