Why does my PC ask me to save as when I want to print?

Help me... When I go to print a document, the computer asks me to save the document. I click 'print' and the 'save as' box appears - why can I not just print my document? What can I do to sort this problem?

What program(s) are you using to print from?  Do you have your Printer set as the "default" printing device?

Hi,

Check to see if you have a tick in the print to file tick box in the first screen when you try to print.

This would cause this issue, as you would be trying to print each file as a file and of course then be asked for the path of where you want to have the document save(d) as

What model computer, what operating system and what printer.
