Error Printing From Outlook


When printing from Outlook a user gets an error in the Backstage Preview Pane that says, “There was an error when printing started. To check the printer setup, double-click the Printers icon in Windows Control Panel.”



Delete the outlprnt file from C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook then restart Outlook.

    Brilliant. It works just fine. Of course, I won’t spend time wondering what is the supposed use of this file in outlook.

      It just contains some print configuration settings. No harm in deleting it.
