    Printing from Microsoft Edge doesn't look promising in general right now.  Microsoft and thousands of users seem to indicate that it doesn't work correctly.

    That being said has Telerik looked into getting the print dialog to come up in Edge?  As of now the print button causes a PDF to download much like it did with Firefox some years back.  I'm wondering if there is a similar workaround for Edge.

    Thank you!

    Hello James,

    According to the Printing Reports help article, Adobe Reader browser plug-in or Chrome PDF plug-in (for Chrome) should be installed and enabled. If Adobe Reader or Chrome PDF plug-in is not detected, clicking the print button would export the report to PDF, which when opened will display a print dialog.
    Also, note that there is a behavior of Edge which prevents the browser from opening PDF files for preview: Viewing PDF files in Edge.

    Having the plug-in is required for the viewer's printing functionality. Unfortunately, Edge does not support the Adobe/Reader plug-in. Here is the official statement of Adobe:

    "Microsoft Edge

    Microsoft Windows 10 will ship with two browsers - Internet Explorer 11 and the new Edge browser.

    The Edge browser will be the default browser and Internet Explorer 11 will be available to support legacy workflows. The new Edge browser will not have any support for ActiveX plug-ins. Therefore, Acrobat/Reader plug-in won't work with Edge. For more information, see Change in support for Acrobat and Reader plug-ins in modern web browsers.

    Use Internet Explorer 11 to open PDFs. To enable the Acrobat/Reader plug-in in Internet Explorer, see the steps in the previous section.
