Windows Explorer Right Click Menu

By ye5udi ·
Once upon a time, in Windows Explorer, when you right-clicked a file name, the context menu that opened included the command Print.
This enabled you to print a file or even a group of selected files directly from Windows Explorer without having to open them.
The File menu in the command toolbar also included this command.
Now, in my WIN7 OS, the Print command doesn't exist anymore in Windows Explorer.
Any idea how to restore it?

I'd rather put it this way

The structure to create a "print" command (or attaching some other command to files of a certain type) is still around in windows 7.

The question is: these special commands are created through Windows registry for specific file types when the corresponding software is installed.

So: What type of file are we talking about? Does the corresponding software offer a way of printing from a command line? Maybe you need to reinstall your software.
(Oh, and do you have a default printer installed and selected?)
