Microsft Edge does not allow users to print background colors

All major browsers support it (Google, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.), but Microsoft Edge does not allow users to print background color of web pages.  I've looked through all the Settings (basic and advanced) and do not see this option that was previously in Internet Explorer.  Does anyone know of a registry setting I may add to have Microsoft Edge print the background colors of web pages?  Seems like such a basic thing.  I am surprised it has been removed from the interface.

Nachappa,

Why do I need to post it in the feedback forum? I am asking a valid question, not merely feedback. Is there a registry setting to turn on background colors in the Microsoft Edge browser? The other browsers have that, including IE. Do you know the answer?

Thanks,

Abner

You need to post it in feedback to increase the number of users who are complaining about not having that feature.  If enough complain they may raise the priority of fixing it.  Edge has other printing issues as well.  It is a work in progress.  I never used IE and from what I see so far will not be using edge either.

Yes, it would be good to have an answer. The stupid Edge browser is a lot of key strokes to print anything and you can't get background images. 

Does microsoft have a committee to think of boneheaded things to annoy their users? The worst thing was Windows 10 wiped out my previous IE browser, links and all.

I am going to have to download some other browser to print images. 

As for feedback, what would it be. Microsoft, stop doing stupid things. Stop creating Vista, Windows 8, etc.

When will this get fixed?  This prevents my entire company from using Edge as a default browser, because to the need to print HTML-generated forms, etc.
