    How to: Use Modern or Metro Style Print Dialog in Windows 10

    Information When you Print from Windows Store apps in Windows 10, a modern Print dialog box will open by default.

    The Print dialog box lets the user select options for a particular print job. For example, the user can specify the printer to use, the range of pages to print, and the number of copies. The printing options available depend entirely on the printer model and software application you're using. Consult the manual that came with your printer or program for more details.

    If you don't like the newer default modern Print dialog in Windows 10, then you can switch to use the older metro style Print panel like in Windows 8 instead.

    This tutorial will show you how to switch to use a modern or metro style Print dialog for Windows apps for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to switch between using a modern or metro style Print dialog.

    Note This will not affect the Print dialog box for desktop programs.


    The .reg files below will add and modify the DWORD value in the registry key below.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print

    EnableModernPrintDialog DWORD

    (delete) = Modern Print dialog
    0 = Metro Print dialog

  2. Hidden Print Button

    This may have to do with resolution/scaling. Are you able to drag the Print dialog box to the top?

    If that doesn't work, you can enable the Windows 8-style Print panel using a registry edit. Get Back Windows 8's Metro-Style Print Panel
    in Windows 10
    .

    After running the REG, print command (from modern Apps) show the print panel (instead of dialog).. That should be a good workaround.

    Someone had the same issue.
