    Problem printing multiple copies


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand that you are unable to print multiple copies using your Brother MFC-LW8900CDW printer, we will look into this for you.

    I would suggest you to try steps mentioned in When
    printing multiple copies or a multi-page document, only a single copy or page is printed - Windows
    and see if that helps.

    If the issue persists, you can try to restart Print Spooler service. Refer the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press Windows key
      + R, to open Run dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on
    3. Scroll down, look for Print Spooler, right click on it and select
    4. Select Automatic from the drop down for
      Startup type.
    5. Click on Start to start the service and click on

    You may also refer the Brother article
    How to print multiple copies or use the collate feature within the Windows printer driver

    Let us know the results.

    Multiple windows 10 copies.

    So what, the question has nothing to do with 7 or the legalities, it has to do with if he can with 10, I suggest you read the question, although why anyone would want more than one copy of 10 is beyond me. I doubt MS will be sending out a helicopter and a sniper because he has more than one copy as a duel boot.

    Multiple Device Copies

    Printer only prints one copy no matter how many multiple copies I enter

    Windows 10 Surface Pro is the PC that I'm trying to print multiple copies of a document from.

    Canon Copier is what I'm trying to print to.

    Are there any suggestions on fixing this?


    This IS NOT a HP Printer: The below fix does not apply. Oh, how I wish it were that easy!

    Disable Mopier mode - this mode is used when the printer has an EIO hard disk installed. If the printer doesn’t have one, it will only print one copy.

    1. Open the (Devices and) Printers Control Panel.
    2. Right-click on the printer, and choose (Printer) Properties.
    3. Click the Device Settings tab.
    4. Scroll to the bottom of the list, and change “Mopier Mode” to “Disabled”, then click OK.
