When you print multiple files of different file types by using the Print button of Windows Explorer, in Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, all the files print in the same format as the last selected file

Consider the following scenario:

  • On a computer that runs Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you select multiple files that have different formats.
  • You click the Print button on the taskbar of Windows Explorer to print these files as a batch.

In this scenario, the operating system prints all the files in the same format as the last file.

For example, you select the following files in order:

  • a.xls
  • b.doc
  • c.txt

Then, you click the Print button on the taskbar of Windows Explorer. After the files print, you find that all the files are printed in the same format as the c.txt file.

Note: This problem does not occur if either of the following conditions is true:

  • The files that you select are of the same type.
  • You print the files individually.
