I can’t print web pages in Internet Explorer 9

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


Before, I used the IE8 and I could print web pages in it . Then, I upgraded to IE9 and now I cannot print web pages.

I tried using Firefox and I can print ok. I can print on the computer using Word, Paint, etc,  but not in IE9 Web Pages.

However, when I revert it back to IE8, I can print in web pages. I download again IE9 but still will not print.

I have tried "use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" in internet options on the tools menu. No help.

I like IE9 and would like to use it if I can resolve this problem.

Please help me!

I can’t print web pages in Internet Explorer 9



Hi Jason

When you print from IE9, is there an error script about a .dll? If there is, you register the .dll in the search box of the start menu. Just type regsvr32 XXXXX.dll then press enter.  You can also try these troubleshooting steps to fix the issue:

·         Install all updates relating to IE 9 using  Windows Update then try printing

·         Try to reset IE9. Go to Tools, then Internet Options and go to Advance tab, then click Reset. You have to restart IE for the changes to take effect.  Then try printing.

I’m not sure what IE you are using if it’s the IE 64-bit or the 32-bit. I would suggest trying to use the Internet Explorer only and try printing from there.

Hope this will be a great help to you. Let me know if it works.

This is a known problem when trying to print from Internet Explorer 9 using different printers.

According to Microsoft, this error message may appear when trying to print multiple pages onto one sheet of paper or when particular settings, such as scaling and colour profiles, are changed.

The problem can also rear its head in other applications that use a particular printing technique. In other words, in addition to a few possible causes there are other circumstances in which you may experience this glitch.

There’s only one fix – and that’s to download and apply the requisite patch from Microsoft’s website.

Another solution that might work in your case but I recommend the first one.

Open IE then go to-Tools-Internet Options. Then click on the Programs tab put a check mark in the box next to. Tell me if IE is not the default web browser. If that doesn't work for you. Then click on the, Advanced tab Scroll down to Printing. Make sure there is Not a check mark in-Print back round colors & images. IF neither one of the suggestions above work. Then at the bottom of the Advanced tab again. Click on the Restore advanced settings.
Hope this helps.
