Print option in File menu in Internet Explorer disabled

By profdocg ·
Hi All Techies

I have a user in our corporate network using a IBM R60 laptop with Xp Pro and SP1. The problem he is having is that he does not have Print option activated in File Menu in Internet Explorer. Also when he hits the PRINT icon in IE it does not pop up with the window with the installed printers under his login

I have tried everything I can think of. The SOE (standard operating environment) people have no idea why this is happening.

So out in this world we have experts to whom I request to please throw some light on the issue and beg them to help me out

Thanks in Advance

Could not find Registry place

by profdocg In reply to Simple Registry Change

Hi Robo Dev

Thanks for a quick reply. I was desperate for the solution. But I think I am not that lucky to implement the solution right away as I could not find the place in registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions. I browsed upto Microsoft but now there is nothing further. No Internet Explorer and no Restriction keys

So again waiting for the reply. I could not find this value in WinXp Pro and not even in Server 2003 Standard Edition

Please confirm the Registry value once again. I also checked the HKEY_USERS but no luck. Please confirm once more

I am really thankful

Waiting in Desperation
