It seems like most of us are experiencing the issue of printing from the Windows Mail App since the last update.  Print is compressed to a 4x6 section of the paper.  I went through the tedious process of uninstalling and reinstalling printers, drivers, etc.  Have tried printing to PDF.. no luck.  Only effects the Mail App at this time.  Need a fix PRONTO!!!!

Hello @Pecos1960,

 

Try re-registering the Mail app. Perform these steps: 

 

1. Search for Windows PowerShell using Cortana or Windows Search. 

 

2. From results, right click on Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator. 

 

3. Then type following command and press Enter key: 

 

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose} 

 

Let the command complete. 

 

4. Close Windows PowerShell and see if the issue is resolved now. 

 

If issue still persists, you can report the problem via Feedback hub. 

 

Let us know if this helps!

Am I going to lose my history when the app is re-installed?
Seems to have worked. Thank You

Glad I could help @Pecos1960!
