    Question IE10 on Windows 7 Home prints to bit bucket

    Went to look at a client's computer this morning. It has Windows 7 Home edition and IE10 (thanks, automatic updates!). It prints fine from OpenOffice, Firefox, Chrome, etc. However, IE doesn't print. You click Print, get the expected behavior, but nothing ever ends up in the print queue. Print Preview works fine. If you right-click and run as administrator it is able to print. If you disable IE's Protected Mode it is able to print.

    I found plenty of social.technet.microsoft.com results in a google search but they are all unresolved; people post that they can't print, they are asked if running as administrator or turning off protected mode helps, they say it does, then nobody says "ok, so now you need to do {something}".

    Any thoughts? I placed some bookmarks in Firefox for the user, who was happy enough with that, but the next time I'm there I'd like to fix it correctly.

    Check the print drivers, I have had the same kind of behaviour with Firefox and some drivers.

    Yeah, driver was my first thought too, but there's no way I'm messing with it. That HP Officejet Pro A910 driver is the most finicky, delicate driver ever made. I wish I could just manually assign a static IP to the printer and manually enter that into the driver instead of being required to use auto-detection that occasionally works. Anyway, since it works with everything else (including IE9) I hope eventually to fix what's wrong with IE10.
