    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. The print dialog is a modal window and disables the window which opened it. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. Please update this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
