Print Attachment?

This is a recent thing.

 

When using Xfinity email through thre website, I open an attachment as I always have, by choosing "view".... then it opens, I see it, but there is no printer icon to print it out, nor do I see any other option to print it.

 

Yes, I can "download" the attachment, and eventually print that, but previously, I was always able to print it after just "viewing" it.  I haven't found anything about this after doing some Google searches.

 

Any help?

When I use "View"  in the header to open the attachment, there is a "hamburger" icon above and to the right of the open document.  Click on that and it will offer the option to print.

Unless it's a photo.  😒

When viewing a photo in the view mode, right click on the photo and choose copy image location or image link (depending on browser). Open a new tab or window, then paste and enter the URL. The photo can then be printed using the browser's print function.

Unless it's just a plain attachment and not an image from a webpage.  I sent myself a photo I had taken and opened it with the View option and there is no way to print it.  The only option is to download it.

Re: Print Attachment?

Thanks for the responses.  Seems the attachment, if a photo, is the issue.  A PDF file had the printer icon.
