Windows 10: print a photo

This guide will explain how print a photo with your personal printer, on classic white paper or on photo paper. It also works with images downloaded from the internet or received by email. So it’s a simple way to print vacation 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 manipulation is not so obvious because the “print” menu is hidden with the Windows 10 image viewer.
