how to get Word (office 2007) to let me select printing preferences?

I have documents created using Word from Office 2007.
The only choice I see top left is the printer icon.
When clicking I need it to open the printer window so I can select
"quantity" etc.

Select "Print..." from the file menu or hold Ctrl and press P. You should get more options.

normally I should get the printer window opening on all print jobs.

with Word, today, I am having to click on the Office icon, then print, then print again, to get the printing preferences box to open.

There is no "file menu" at the top.
Not seeing one on an existing Word document that has already been created and saved.

Any setting so I get the printer window all the time?
• Office Icon->Word Options->Customize.
Choose "All commands"-> choose "Print"-> Add to Quick access tool bar.

Another way to access "customize" was the down arrow to the right of the printer icon, then "other commands".

When I get to the "customize" list, "print" is not there, only print preview and quick print. and both are already on the tool bar list on the right.
Under "Customize" option -> "Choose commands from". Make sure to select "All commands" as shown on the attached screen shot.
