  1. Printer disappeared after installing Windows 10


    I seem to be having the same problem Steven did (four years ago) Upgraded to Windows 10 and my Epson C88+ disappeared. I'm not particularly tech-savvy so I'm at a loss. I've reinstalled the printer but still says drivers not available. Everything was fine with my earlier version.

    :)

  3. Printers Disappeared Windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    From your issue description, I understand that you are facing issue with printers. Not to worry, I am here to help you with this issue.

    • Do you receive any error message?

    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter and check.

    1. Click on search bar next to Start Menu.

    2. Type “Troubleshooting” without the quotes and click on
    Troubleshooting.

    3. Click on View All on the left panel of the screen.

    4. Click on Hardware and Devices.

    5. Click on Next and follow the prompts to run the troubleshooter.

    Method 2: Printer Troubleshooter

    The built-in Printer Troubleshooter can automatically detect and fix most of the incorrect settings and errors that could cause issues while printing. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if there is any issue
    occurs.

    • Press Windows and x key together and select Control Panel.
    • Click on Troubleshooting and select the
      view all
      option on the left pane.
    • Click on Printer troubleshooter and follow the prompts.
    Method 3: Uninstall and Reinstall the Printer's Driver

    Step 1: Uninstall the Printer's Drivers


    • Press “Windows Logo” + “X” keys on the keyboard.

    • Click on “Device
      Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Printer from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this
      device
      ” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Update Driver Software from the Manufacturer’s website:

    Step 2:
    Go to the Printer manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the printer model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Printer disappeared after installing Windows 10

    Network printer disappeared after windows 10 update

    After doing the latest update of windows 10, for some reason one of my network printers has disappeared. I am still able to print on the other 2 network printers that I have installed, but the 3rd one is missing. When I try to go add it again it doesn't
    show up in the suggested list after going into add a device from the device and printers menu. And for some reason now it doesn't give me the option to even select "the printer I want inst listed".

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you
