    Add or Remove Microsoft XPS Document Writer Printer in Windows 10


    Since my last Windows 10 update, I have not been able to print. It seems my issue is caused by a missing Microsoft XPS Document Writer. In step 1 of Option 5, the lines for XPS Services and XPS Viewer do not even appear in my Window Features window. What do I need to do?
