I have been a long time user of Elements.  I recently upgraded to 10 and it no longer recognizes my printers.  It says that I need to install printers.  When I look in Windows my printers are still installed and work with other programs.  The forum wants my to set a photo printer as a default, but i use a laser printer as a default for word processing.  This seems to be a serious problem for more than just me.

    You did not specify which printer(s) are not recognized. The HP printers have long names, and it has been reported that PSE gets "confused"!


    If this applies, go to Control Panel>Devices and Printers, right click on the printer which is not recognized, in the menu go to Printer Properties, and give it a short name - e.g. My Printer. Make it default printer and see if it works,.

    You're not talking to Adobe here. The responders are users, like you, trying to help. Did you rename one of the HP printers, as suggested?


    Also, have a look at this thread:
