Print Window Disparities

Hi. I have GIMP 2.10 installed with no errors on win7x32. When I enter print there is a totally different dialog than what is shone in help (see attached). What am I missing?

It is the difference between Linux and Windows installations. see screenshot. Gimp is developed in linux and printing is handled in a different way

It is all there: File -> Print has the General and Image settings. File -> Page Setup is Page setup. The other tabs you see in the linux screenshot, Image quality / Color / Advanced you should get from the Windows printer driver software that came with your printer.

To be honest the Windows print.exe is not wonderful. Often better to export your work as a jpg or png file and use some other application such as XnViewMP or IrfanView for printing.
