I'm exhausted to search and search about this topic. I want to develop an ASP application with C# from which user print to printer network any file (DOCX. PPTX, XLSX, CAD, PDF, PSD, JPEG, PNG,... all types of files). I want that the user to search your file that he wants to send to print, select if print will be "Colour" or "Black and white", click on a "print" button -without print dialog- and send to printer defined to default for each case. I don't know how to begin. Someone have any idea?

You wouldn't do this with an ASP or ASP.NET application. What you're talking about is entirely a desktop application, like Windows Forms or WPF.

This is because ASP.NET code runs entirely on the server, not the client. The code you write there will have no access at all to the clients files unless they are uploaded to the server first.

Ok! But, if we consider the detail of file server, what could I do?
Have you tried this? It seems to do most of the things you want to do.

Is not a bad idea, Marc, but I have to pay for this solution and if is possible saves money for this, would be better. Also that, if I can develop this application, I can customize it to my taste. Thanks for answer!
