    I never had this problem before and we have a bunch of computers here at home including the one that still won't update to beyond W10 1909, but that's not the issue.This started yesterday. Here are some details...- Printers are on the Windows 10 V.1909 machine- Printers are shared- Everything worked perfectly until yesterday on the network- There were no updates on any of the machines- The computers are networked using gigabit Ethernet, not Wi-Fi.- I can ping every computer successfully from every other computerSo, what's new???- As of yesterday, one machine my wife's workstation, of cours

    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.
