    My printer will not print, it wants to save to an .xps file. No matter what I do.

    When you attempt to print, what is the name of the printer that comes up in the printer dialog box?

    Is it Microsoft XPs Document writer?

    If so, check in your Devices and Printers app from the start menu or control panel. If you see a green check box next to the XPS printer, than that has been set as your default. Right click the picture of the printer you want to use and select "Set as default printer".
