Quick Print: Print all Email attachments in the message one by one

To do so:

  • Select the email.
  • Select one attachment file of that Email message you wish to print.
  • Now hit on “Quick Print” under Attachments in the “Actions” group.

Note: The Quick print method does not work in Outlook 2007 except Outlook 2013 & 2010.

What if Microsoft Outlook crash at the time of printing?

If you are printing something from Microsoft Outlook and it gets freeze, crashed and printing messages in an untidy way like right-to-left instead of left-to-right, then watch out for corruption of “OutlPrnt” file. Fundamentally, this file is responsible for print style settings in Microsoft Outlook and that is the reason why styling of printing gets impaired. If you find out it corrupted, then you need to make some changes in “OutlPrnt” file.

To solve this issue:

  • First, close “Microsoft Outlook“.
  • Rename the “OutlPrnt” file to “OutlPrnt.old“.
  • Location to find OutlPrnt in Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
  • Location to find OutlPrnt in Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
