Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. Why is there not a ‘Quick Print’ option, like outlook has?
    It’s so incredibly inconvenient to have to open the attachement six times, just in order to print it.
    I don’t want to open or save it.
    I want to print it WITHOUT being forced to view it!

  2. I was also having trouble printing emails from the Mail App and used the quick expedient of saving them as .pdf files and then printing. Trying again later, I then opened the print queue to see if the emails were being added to the queue as documents. That seemed to do it. If the print queue box was open in the background, the emails would print. Anyone else having trouble may want to try opening their print queue in settings and leaving it open in the background to try to print Mail App emails.

  3. We have two mail accounts and the first one has the three dot option but the second one does not. How do we go about getting these?

  4. I looked at the above info on how to print. I still can’t print from emails. I click on the three dots, then click “print” and the printer dialog box is so large that I can’t get to the “print” button at the bottom. It’s hidden below the frame. Does anyone know how to shrink or move the box so I can print emails? Thanx.
