Do You Have Outlook Printing Issues

MS Outlook helps you stay connected with your friends, colleagues and family through its email service. But that is not the only function it serves. It also provides other services like note taking, journals, appointments, contact manager and calendar. Thus Outlook functions both as an email client as well as a personal manager tool. You can also create a transportable account and activate your Outlook account on another system, using the personal address book in MS Outlook.
You can print documents, attachments, email messages and your calendars, directly from the application. This is facilitated as Outlook stores all of its print style configurations in the OutlPrnt file. A corrupted OutlPrnt file can cause serious issues with the printing process. To fix this you must rename the OutlPrnt file so the Outlook program creates a fresh copy automatically. This fresh copy has the default settings configured, and hence eliminates your printing problems.
So are you a novice to Outlook? Well here are some instructions that should help you with fixing your problem, that is to say renaming the OutlPrnt file.
  • Exit the outlook application either by clicking the X symbol on the right topmost corner, or by clicking the File option in the toolbar and selecting Exit from the menu.
  • Click on the Start menu in your desktop and choose My Computer option. Alternatively you can also click on the Computer icon in your desktop.
  • Go to the Outlook program folder saved in your hard drive. Usually for Windows XP users or those using other versions, this folder will be located in the C drive. In Windows XP you can find the Outlook program folder in at C:\Documents then Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
  • If your operating system is Windows Vista or Windows 7, this folder will be found in the C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook.
  • Select the file to mark it.
  • Place your mouse cursor on the actual OutlPrnt filename and click it.
  • In the file name add .old as an extension to the OutlPrnt file name. Press Enter to save this file extension.
  • Now proceed to restart your Outlook, which will create a fresh OutlPrnt file.
Now you have successfully removed your Outlook problems with printing. You can now print all important documents, calendars and emails without any hassle. If you still encounter Outlook problems with the printing process, check in with Outlook help to see any viable solutions for your issues. If problems persist contact the Outlook help desk to diagnose and resolve any issues.
