Messages in Outlook Express are readable but unreadable when printed. How do I fix this
Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows Explorer.

On the View menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.

In the Registered File Types box, click each file type one at a time, and then view the file extension under "File type details."

If the file extension is TMP, click Remove, and then click OK.

Once done, restart the computer and tell me if it now prints correctly please.

Thank you

Had to click Accessories to find Window Explorer, clicked view but no folder options.

It is there Pat.

It is easier to work with you on this. You can see and control everything I do

This will download a program to your computer.

Hello Richard,


Yes it is printing ok now.


Thank you for your help and sorry for all the bother.


Yours Sincerely





It was no bother at all Pat,

We just needed to eliminate the causes for this problem, starting with the most common, which we did.

Good it is all working now. If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
