Hi v,

Well try this,

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  DeskTop: TCanvas;
begin
  DeskTop := TCanvas.Create;
  try
    with DeskTop do Handle := GetWindowDC(GetDesktopWindow);
    Image1.BoundsRect := Desktop.ClipRect;
    with Image1.Canvas do
      CopyRect(Image1.BoundsRect, DeskTop, DeskTop.ClipRect)
  finally
    DeskTop.Free
  end;
  PrintImage;
end;

procedure TForm1.PrintImage;
var
  ScaleX, ScaleY: Integer;
  R  : TRect;
  Printer: TPrinter;
begin
  Printer := TPrinter.Create;
  try
    Printer.BeginDoc;
    with Printer do
    try
      ScaleX := GetDeviceCaps(Handle, logPixelsX) div PixelsPerInch;
      ScaleY := GetDeviceCaps(Handle, logPixelsY) div PixelsPerInch;
      R := Rect(0, 0, Image1.Picture.Width * ScaleX,
        Image1.Picture.Height * ScaleY);
      Canvas.StretchDraw(R, Image1.Picture.Graphic);
    finally
      EndDoc;
    end;
  except
    on E: Exception do showmessage(E.Message);
  end;
  Printer.Free;
end;

Just didn't have the change to test it on a printer yet, but it should get you going. It is a simple example of copying the desktop to an image and printing the image.
