Windows 10: print a photo

Windows 10 : imprimer une photo

This guide will explain how to print a photo with your personal printer on classic white paper or photo paper. It also works with images downloaded from the internet or received by email. So it’s a simple way to print holiday or family photos to frame them, without having to go to the photographer or order prints online from a photo printing site.

This seemingly simple operation is not as obvious because the “print” menu is hidden with the Windows 10 image viewer.
