Steps to reproduce

Window.print() JS function doesn’t open the browser’s default print dialog box.

While this function works like a charm in other browsers.

There is a similar reported issue but says it’s been fixed but I believe its not.

    • Hi Zach,

      I am using Microsoft Edge 44.17763.1.0 and I am still facing the same issue.

      I have browsed to the w3schools link that you provided me, I used Microsoft edge and nothing happens when I click on the print button that calls window.print() function.

      Whereas using the same w3schools link in chrome, clicking on the print button opens up the default print dialog box.

      The button calling window.print() function does nothing upon a click.

    • Hi Ali!

      I tested the reproduction you sent me on the newest version of Microsoft Edge and the button pulled up the print menu properly. Do you have any extensions installed that could be effecting this?
