    USB Printing

    Has anyone had any issues with printing via USB to a printer in Windows 8?

    Got one I cannot even get installed yet it works fine on Windows XP.

    Any advice?

    I did find one printer where I had to select the driver to install manually on my Surface RT but other than that Windows 8 seems pretty solid as far as printers go.

    What make/model is the printer that you are using?

    It's a Sharp MX-M620, works fine on Windows XP so know the printer is ok. I am reading mixed reviews of printing via USB for Windows 8.
