Windows XP photo print

I have a problem trying to print photos directly from a photo folder (properties correctly set). When I open My Pictures the option "Print photo" is available but as soon as I click on a photo or a sub folder then this option disappears. If I then select Print from the file menu Outlook starts up and tries to send a fax!. My printer is set as the default printer. I think this problem started after I tried to send a fax. I think that the MS Photo Editor is defaulting to the fax but how do you change that?

Any Ideas?

There is nothing to purge in the fax outbox.

I often use this to print photos and I think you click on "Print Pictures" before making any selections. This brings up a new window for you to select pictures, layout and printer quality etc.

The problem is that the option to click on "print pictures" is not there.

As soon you first open My Pictures don't select any folder and the Print Pictures should be down the lefthand side. As soon as you select a folder this option is gone. I used to make this mistake at first and wondered where it had gone to.

Thanks that's useful to know. Never used that way.

I am not getting the print icon at the bottom of the picture. I used to. If is select Print from the file menu it starts up the fax, although my Epson printer is selected as the default printer. I think there is a problem with MS Photo Editor.
