    Question Unable to print from Word, PP Windows 8 (second screen)

    I was so excited to start working in Windows 8. I do work from home occasionally and need to use Microsoft Office (Word or PP). I was very disappointed that when I went to print, it stated noting could be printed from this screen. How do I print something in Word or PP in Windows 8? Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Do you have printer and is it installed? What steps/method are you using to print? I can print just fine in MS Word, PP or any other application for that matter.

    Yes, I do have a printer installed, a lee to print email, photos, but as soon as I go into Word or Pp it takes to the "main" screen, or the screen I know as the screen for all other Windows. When I go to print from to new Win8 screen I have my printer as an option, when I go from the old main screen it says "cannot print from this screen" also says "second screen".

    There is something lost in the way your trying to explain your issue, for me. I'm more confused now with your 2nd post as to the first post.

    What is "a lee to print email, photos"? Is the printer model brand a "Lee"? What are you referring to as "the main screen" or "the screen I know as the screen for all other Windows"? Would you be referring to the new windows start screen aka metro screen with all the tiles showing?

    What is the make and model of your PC? What is the make and model of your printer?

    "able" to print emails, photos.....sorry about the typo.....

    I have an Epson WF-2540 printer

    There is the new Win8 screen (Metro screen as you call it?) then the "underlying screen" or "start screen" or "underlying screen" that is used in other Windows (less than 8).
    When I click on the PP or Windows (in the Metro screen) it goes to the "second screen" to open the documents. It is here that it will not let me print from.

    I have a Dell inspiron that I just recently had to restart with Windows8.

    I cannot replicate your issue. Open a Word doc > File > Print, hit Print button & Bob's you're uncle.

    Find a PP file, Rt Clk, hit Print & it does.

    Same for image files/photos.

    If using Photo APP or (PDF) Reader > Charms > Devices, select the printer & print.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Drew
