White box / blank area when printing images



In Explorer, when I right-click an image and choose "Print" (i.e using Windows' image printing feature), the printed picture has a white borderless box covering the middle of the page. This happens every time, no matter what settings I change, such as a size, type of paper, quality, etc. It happens with jpeg, jpg and png files, but not bmp.

If I open the image with IrfanView or Photos and print from the app, it prints fine. All other documents such as docx, pdf and xlsx print fine.

I use Windows Picture & Photo Viewer as my default image app, I wonder if it's something to do with that.

Tried rebooting and I've ran Windows Update. I am reluctant to uninstall/reinstall drivers/software because the problem isn't widespread, only printing images from Explorer.

Thanks for any assistance.
