have a brand new windows 7 64 bit os and using windows live. can't seem to get direct print to work from wlive attachment via right click and print...it opens to adobe but no option to print really...i know wlive sucks but it should work right? it's for my client..and that is just what they use...also how do you "view" details in explorer and maintain them like that perm. the normal ways of saving those settings don't seem to hold...

Are you able t print any other file? Like if you create a file in Microsoft word and try to print it will it get through?

Can you please save first the documents then try to print?

Shall i assume that this ever worked for your? Printing without save?

My 2nd question was if you locally create a file in the MS word then print. Will it print?

i guess in xp with windows live it asks you to open in order to print , BUT it does not open, it looks like the only option in windows live, THE PROBLEM, is to save then open then print..what a fiasco !!
and yes it prints fine in word/excel...which tells me that it is a windows live prob. as i suspected in the begining...having said that, i think that there are plenty issues with windows live, so prob. just have to live with it or use a diff. email editor...also what was your thoughts on being able to "view" explorer in details and have it STAY that way...?

It seems this is how does it work. Because everytime you want to print anything you have to download it first then need to print, yeah true its apain but this is how its design

best answer is that ms design is 'just the way it is" i guess we should have known that it would be that way as "it is what it is"...thanks
