    "I cannot print from WordPad ..."

    Doubt that I can help, but you do need to be more specific. No 'print' in the file menu? Or, it is greyed out? Or you print but get an error message? Or the print job just silently disappears? Etc.?

    After you click 'Print ...' in the File menu you should get a window that, among other options, allows you to select the printer to use.
