This is weird......

 

While doing some document work today I noticed that I can select a "Word Pad", "Power Point", or "Note Pad" page, and go to file and print and the pages will print with no problems at all.

 

However, when I tried to print pages in "Word" or "Excel" I got a pop up box that reads....."NO PRINTERS ARE INSTALLED. TO INSTALL A PRINTER.........

 

Why is it that three programs are printing fine and two are telling me there is no printer installed?  If there were no printers installed I would think nothing would print.

 

Ahhhhhhhh! What in the world is going on here?

 

Thanks,

 

Harkcomp
