  1. All printers are gone after update to Windows 10.0.18362


    Hi, everyone!


    My laptop updated recently to Windows 10.0.18362 and all of my printers that were not connected to it or are virtual are now gone from Devices and Printers, including Fax (MS Fax printer), OneNote (MS Send to OneNote printer), Microsoft Print to PDF, Microsoft XPS Document Writer, PDF Report Writer (Autodesk AutoCAD default PDF output), Print to Evernote (Evernote`s Send to notebook printer) and Google Virtual Printer and some of my printers that were not connected to laptop at the time of this update. The only printer that remains is my WiFi-connected printer.


    More over, when I reinstall them they reappear in Devices and Printers but when I try to print using them or just to print a test page - depending on wich application I use to print - there are similar error warinigs, saying that there was an error during the start of printing.


    One odd thing to mention is that despite the fact that my printers are gone from Devices and Printers, they all remain in print dialogues in all of my applications.


    Any ideas how to bring order to this chaotic mess?

    :)

  2. USB printer disappears with W10 build 18362

    I updated my PC to Build 18362 and my Laserjet 2200D printer on a USB connection disappeared and I can't add it back in as its not discoverable. I updated another PC to the same build and it doesn't work on that either. I tried the pinter and cable on
    a laptop and it works OK. I've gone through the HP process of adding in the printer drivers and then switching on the printer and it still can't be discovered. Its an old printer, about 12 years old, but I think it should still work. Any suggestions?

  3. Windows 10 updates. Installed printer gone?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Please let us know

    1.The make and model of the Printer?

    2.Do you receive any error message?

    Meanwhile please refer to the steps below and see if it helps:

    Step 1: Part of the Windows 10 upgrade process includes installing important software updates to support full functionality of the computer and connected devices. If all updates failed to install, your printer might not work as expected.
    Make sure Windows installed all updates on the computer.


    • Search Windows for Windows update, then click the Windows Update control panel setting in the list of results.

    • Click Check for updates.

      • If updates are available, wait for them to install, restart the computer, then try to print. If you can print, the issue is resolved.

      • If updates are not available or you still cannot print, continue to the next step.

    Step 2: Please refer to the link below to Connect a printer to the PC if its not connected:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/getstarted-connect-to-a-printer

    Hope this helps.

    Please get back to us with the updated status and we will be glad to help you further.
