Yesterday I transferred a Brother DCP-135C printer to a computer with Windows 7 installed from a previous no problem set-up using Windows XP.
On test all seemed fine, until late last night when I noticed a problem that the printer would not always print, using various methods.
If there is a page with print tab on it, then clicking the tab, a print-out is achieved. If no tab, then using the mouse and right control, a drop down list on the screen gives various options. Sometimes it shows a print option, other times no print option is shown. So no printing method seems not possible.
Been in touch with Brother support, and they have suggested trying different browsers, but attempting this just doesn't seem to resolve the problem. Tried Chrome and Google but not Internet Explorer, because I do not use that browser.
With XP I could use the 'tools' facility, with W7 this option doesn't appear possible, or at least I cannot find this option?.
Any ideas that you might think will resolve this issue. According to the Brother website, I am using the latest version drivers, which apparently covers W7?.

spuds , for some reason IE, as part of the OS, has always had a bad press. Since the beginning of XP I've always used IE as my main browser. Still use IE8 on a tiny netbook and continue to use IE11 on Win 8.1.
I really don't see how Chrome is better than it, as I've tried a lot of browsers in my time.
Firefox is now mimicking Google Chrome for some strange reason. That's why I use Pale Moon as a second browser for backup now.
Still, if you're up and running, then that's all that matters.
