You know like that old tootsie pop commercial? I often wonder when I'm printing out a wrapper on my slow, ancient HP Pavillion, how many clicks and windows are there to print out a wrapper?

I finally sat down and counted today. My count was 9 mouse clicks and 8 pop-ups and windows.

1st click Print wrapper button

"Customize wrapper" window

2nd click Print wrapper now

3rd click IE blocker bar

4th click Select Download file

5th click, select "open"

Download loading pop-up box

Adobe window with wrapper

6th click, print button

Printer customize window

7th click Print (OK)

quick Printer file-load box

******Wrapper Prints!!!******

8th click Close Adobe window

9th click, Close Wrapper customize window

lol it takes me three clicks on my mac.  You can probably set your browser not to block the pbs site and eliminate one or two of those clicks, and to open downloaded files automatically and skip a couple more...

The IE blocker bar can be removed by accessing the Internet Options menu under tools.   I can't remember exactly how I did it, which means Explorer must have had directions on how to do it.  Other than that, I'm doing pretty much the same thing you are and, yes, it is tiresome.

Thanks for the advice all. I'm glad there's something I can do about it.
