  1. Printer in device list wont show up in printer list for printing.


    I successfully add my bluetooth printer to the printer list, and it shows up in the scanner app, but it wont show up as a printer for any of the apps that print, or in any of the other management lists.

    How to flush the list of Printer in the Printer list

    How do i flush the printer list that comes up when selecting the printer to print too? I guess this is some sort of Cache? This problem is I have many old deleted printer that continue to com up in the list to print too. Deleting them from Printer and devices does not change this list.
    To better explain the list I'm referring to When you invoke the print command form anywhere a list will come up and you select the printer you wish to use! This is the list I need to flush
    I need to flush this list and let it recreate the 3 actual printer that I have on the network
    I found this to be an issue since installing 20H2 my LAN printer don't want to start up so I have had to delete them and reinstall them so now the list shows Example HP 6700 LAN I Have two of these now and selecting the wrong one will cause the document to not print.

    Printer listed as device and not as a printer. Cannot print

    I am not able to print. If I go to Word or any other application my printer is not listed. If I go to settings I see my printer listed as a printer. When I go to > hardware and printers, then my printer is listed as a
    device and not as a printer. This is probably the reason why it is not listed in applications like Word. How can this problem be fixed? I run a business and need to print!
