Printing a file in Windows Explorer is an easy process. To begin, open the File Explorer window. This can be done by clicking on the File Explorer icon on the taskbar of your computer or pressing the Windows + E keys on your keyboard.
Once the File Explorer window is open, locate and select the file that you wish to print. You can do this by browsing through the folders and files on your computer, or by using the search bar at the top of the window and typing in the name of the file.
Once the desired file is selected, right-click it and select the “Print” option from the menu. This will open the Print dialog box with an overview of what you are about to print. Here you can adjust the printer settings to match your preferences – such as the number of copies needed and the page orientation.
When ready, click on the “Print” button located at the bottom of the window. The document should now begin printing. Once it has finished, the print job will be completed.
If the Print dialog box does not appear when right-clicking the file, it is possible that the file type is not supported by your printer. If this is the case, look for an alternate way to print the file such as opening it in a program and selecting the “Print” option from the File menu.
In some cases, you may need to install a specific driver or update your printer’s firmware in order to print certain file types. If this is required, make sure to follow the instructions provided by the device manufacturer.
You can also print multiple files in one go. To do this, select multiple files by holding down the Ctrl key and selecting them individually. Then, right-click any of the selected files and select the “Print” option. This will open the Print dialog box with an overview of all the files that are being printed.
To check the progress of the print job, open the Devices and Printers window by going to Control Panel > Devices and Printers. Here you will see a list of all connected printers and the print jobs that are currently in progress.
And that’s how you print a file in Windows Explorer. With a few simple steps, you can easily print any document you need in no time.
