    Adding unlisted printer to the Win10 list


    !'m not sure how I did it but all seems well now. It was something like Deacon suggested plus a re-boot or two. It's now listed as a printer, not as unspecified.

    Update the list still doesn't work.

    Thanks for your support.

    PS MS's Update catalogue is very useful. E.g. Microsoft Update Catalog

    Windows 10 upgrade will not allow access to network printers

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might related to permission to share printer.

    I suggest you to remove the network printer and try adding it again and check if it helps

    Follow the below steps:

    Step 1: Make sure that, the printer is shared on the network in the primary computer.

    Step 2: Remove the network printer.

    a) Type Devices and printer in the search area on the task bar and select
    Device and Printer.

    b) Select the printer and click on
    Remove Device
    button.

    Step 3: Restart your system.

    Step 4: Add the network printer
    again.

    a) Type Devices and printer in the search area on the task bar and select
    Device and Printer.

    b) Click on Add Printer.

    c) Let Windows scan for the printer and if detected select the printer and click Next. If the
    printer is not listed click "The printer that I want isn't listed" and skip to add printer by name or TCP/IP address.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
