All other shortcuts work, but ctrl+p for printing doesn't work with any application.  I'm stumped!  I've tried reinstalling keyboard drivers and ensuring print spooler is running. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance for any  help on this.

Hello YeastLords and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer

 

In which program are yo trying to print on? Can you print it manually (IE via FilePrint or clicking the Print icon)?

Thanks for the welcome!

 

Using the shortcut (ctrl+p) I'm trying to print using various programs (notepad, word, outlook, firefox, chrome) none of which are successful.  I'm able to print successfully using the File > Print and print icons, just not with the keyboard shortcut.

 

Thanks again.

Seems to me like there's a hotkey/shortcut conflict

 

Use Shortcut Key Explorer to get a list of all application shortcuts.

 

See which one is taking control of Ctrl + P

Thanks FreeBooter!

 

I used to use  Windows Hotkey Explorer but its not compatible with Windows 8 and above (if you run it, it will execute all the hotkeys rather than listing them). Shortcut Key Explorer is compatible so it should work

 

Edit: Whoops, wrong program name

I have just test the Shortcut Key Explorer program and it does work with Windows 10 nice but i have notice system keyboard shortcuts cannot be assign to applications shortcuts but i'm sure there is way to assign system keyboard shortcuts to applications Shortcuts the third party installed program may have assign the CTRL + P to a program shortcut we will know if this is the case when OP runs the  Shortcut Key Explorer program.

That's a very useful program, although I ran it and it mentioned no shortcut keys were assigned.  Any other thoughts?

It seems to be the only keyboard shortcut that does absolutely nothing when I press it.  Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V, Ctrl + A all work fine.  I really am stumped on this one!

We will have to manually figure out which program is taking over the Print Hotkey

 

3Al62Pm.pngMiniToolBox

 

Download MiniToolBox and move the executable file to your Desktop if you have deleted MiniToolBox from using it before, otherwise skip this step

Right-click on MiniToolBox.exe and select Spcusrh.pngRun as Administrator

Check the following options:

  • List Installed Programs

Once this is done, click on Go and wait for the scan to complete

Once the scan is complete, a log will open. 

Please copy/paste the content of the output log in your next reply
