Sorry for the delay in replying (work commitments) but here I am.
Ok the printer is connected by a USB. When I first got it it just wouldn't connect wirelessly. That is no problem.
Anyway I cleaned out all signs of the printer and downloaded new drivers. All that went swimmingly but when I come to print the document all that shows is a "Save Print Output As" box. When I click on the print icon in this box, up pops a 'Print file directly (microsoft xps document writer)' there is no sign of the Epson.
In the aforementioned "Save Print Output As" box there is a '?'. I clicked on this and got a windows Help and support box. Now in this box there is an option to print the HP help item. If I click on this, there is my epson printer!!! Not much good that as I dont want to print the help + support item, I want it as my main printer like it was before I upgraded.
I hope all this makes sense as I am just writing the events as they happened, word for word.
