I configured a CD Label and I can't find the option to print it. The Print function does not give the option to print a label.

There wouldn't be any special command to print to a label. You print as normal, but you want to make sure that the correct paper type is chosen within the Page Setup dialog. If your label paper doesn't appear in the list, you will need to contact your printer manufacturer as that list is generated by the printer driver (the Page Setup dialog doesn't belong to Elements, it is just accessed by our application), different printers will generate different lists of available paper types.

That's incorrect. What printer doesn't have Avery options for printing labels, envelopes, etc. I've printed CD labels off this printer before. I'm finding Adobe Elements to be very non-intuitive and difficult to use for such a simple thing as printing a CD label. Frustrated.

What I'm saying is there is not a special option to print a CD label in Elements. You just go to File > Print and print as if you were printing to photo paper. You could technically go entirely without any sort of tempting. Lets say you had a square document in PSE and filled it all with blue. If you printed this to a CD label, it would just print the entire label area and then the rest would be considered a bleed, printing over the rest of the material (assumed to be some sort of paper). Templating with PSE just helps align the print so everything ends up where you want it in the end. But it is ultimately up to the printer to know the dimensions of the media that will be printed to and this information is stored when you choose the media type in the printer options.
