    Default Printing problems Windows 10

    Got a fairly new canon printer TS 5160 - yes a cheaper one but does the job, well it did, though not sure it is the printer

    Trying to print a few pictures just on normal paper and prints fine via Photoshop Elements when I set as "Elements manages the colour" or something similar

    However, if I try to print from opening the folder in explorer and printing via the "app" it comes out dull, not sure I have tried to do this on this printer since I had it, only been a month or 2.

    Have only printed PDF's, emails, word/excel etc all good.

    Have changed the ink to new canon inks, still the same.

    Think my old printer started to do this as well before it died, but I think I somehow fixed it, cannot remember how
    Have not changed any settings as far as I am aware
    Any ides/gurus out there??

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have an option to change the print quality? Something like "Standard", "High", or "Draft". Changing it to high will use more ink but give a better result. The printer manual should tell you how to change this. Pages 189/190 and 234 of this manual shows a picture of what I'm talking about
