There some things that if you don't mind you will check for me that is if your video card or video drive is outdated or corrupt, because In case it is corrupted or outdated then it might be the cause of the printing errors that you get. Check whether you have printing permission assigned to you because without the permission you might never be able to print using explorer 9. It may also be that you have the protect mode enabled for the internet security zone. Check that all this are not hindrances to your printing.
Note that the printing button also belongs to the command's bar that you may not have enabled by default IE9. Try to activate the command bar on the menu bar by clicking view then toolbar then command bar. You can have the menu bar expressly by pressing the Alt key. You can also get to print a webpage by clicking the tools button and the print to do it directly click the right mouse button then choose print.
I have Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and I can launch the print feature though I don’t have a printer. What I have is a PDF printer and an image printer. If you can print using Mozilla Firefox but not with Microsoft Internet Explorer, try reinstalling Microsoft Internet Explorer. Click “Start”, “Control Panel” then “Add or Remove Programs”. On the next screen, on the left pane click “Add/Remove Windows Components”.
In “Windows Components Wizard”, look for “Internet Explorer” and uncheck it. Click “Next” then follow the instructions.
After this, close Control Panel then restart your computer. After booting, go back to “Windows Components Wizard” and check “Internet Explorer” to install it back. Try printing again on the browser and see if it works.
