    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

  3. Printer not being added

    Hello,

    If you're unable to connect to your printer or print in Windows 10, we recommend following the steps in this
    article to try and fix the problem. Since you keep on getting the "Windows doesn't has a network
    profile for this device
    " error, we also suggest installing the driver for your printer. You can follow the steps below:

    1. Press Windows key + X > Device Manager.
    2. Click the drop-down menu for Printers > right-click on your printer's name > Properties.
    3. Go to Driver tab > Install > OK.
    4. Restart your computer after doing these steps.

    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.

    adding new printer icon to taskbar in Windows 10

    Hello Ingrid,

    Just to verify, is the new printer different from the old one that you had replaced? We are asking this because this option can be made possible if depending on the printer utility. Some printers have the utility to make it load in the Notification Area,
    and are hidden by default. The best option that we can suggest is to reach out to your printer manufacturer's support to inquire if your printer utility supports this feature.

    You can also try out this link for steps on how to pin apps and folders to the desktop, and see if this
    would work for you.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
