    Can't find Printer Settings (XP)

    I have Win XP at home, and so does a friend of mine. He said he can't get to his printer settings through Start, Settings, Printers. He said that there is no sub menu for Settings. I have no problem viewing the menus. I suggested he might have personalized menus, but we looked, and it just looks like there isn't supposed to be a submenu from Settings. Hmmm... any ideas?

    Not sure how YOU'RE getting to what you call settings. All you need to do is Start, Settings, Printers, then right-click on the printer and select Properties, no?

    I'm trying to get to the list of printers... Start, Settings, Printers... but when I click on Start, Settings, there is no submenu that usually has control panel, printers, etc.

    From START I directly go to to "printers and faxes". From there I can manipulate my printer settings.
    Is this a difference between XP Home an d XP Pro????

    Re: Can't find Printer Settings (XP)

    Ah, I see said the man. Well, not being sure if we're dealing with an "XP style" or a "Classic" menu, let's start here: right-click on an empty spot on the Task Bar, select Properties and then Start Menu. You'll have to browse thru the list of check boxes and see if something is UN-CHECKED having to do with Settings. This is a start. If this isn't it, report back and we'll have to try to find what might be "broken."
