• Windows 8 will open up a list of printing devices installed on your computer. Select a device from the given list and also customize the page’s orientation (printing preferences) viz. size, color, font etc. When done, tap or click the Print button.

• The file-to-be print will now be saved to the documents folder. You will see a notification saying ‘File saved to the Documents folder’. When done, navigate to the Documents folder and open the file with XPS Viewer. Either give a print command (Ctrl + P) or click the File menu> Print and your email will be printed. Take the printout from your printer. Once you have printed all the desired emails, you can close out your email account if desired.
