Printing Sheets issue in Excel 2016

I have an Hp Printer and I am attempting to print out sheets

But when i try to enter the rows I want to print it is grayed out.

 -- Rows to Repeat at top
 --Columns to Repeat at left

I uninstalled the Printer and reinstalled and have the Same issue.

How can I repair.

See Picture below....the area I wish to edit is grayed out.

Looks like you have gone into the page Setup from the Print Dialogue. Unfortunately, that part of the page setup doesn't work from the Print screen; it has to be done from the Page Layout tab on the ribbon.

1. Try Repairing Office (Full Repair) - go to Programs and Features.
2. Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account) . Log into the new Account and test Excel printing in the new account.
Hi Jospeh,

Please can you try creating a new Excel workbook, and just put some random text in the first few rows, then try to do the print rows settings again, and let us know if that works.

If so, then it might be a corrupt file.

Did you try using the Print Titles button on the Page Layout tab in the ribbon ?
Do you get the same result ?
