  1. Printer not working after installing update to Windows 10


    My printer stopped working after installing update to Windows 10, Version 1903. When I try to print, the print dialog box comes up, but when I hit print, it takes me to my files where "Save Print Output As". This never happened before. I've tried everything I read from MS and uninstalled and reinstalled my printer even.

    :)

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update problems and complaints
    • Installation problems with the Fall Creators Update
    • Microsoft Edge problems with the Fall Creators Update

    keep in mind, as of recently, the FCU is installed on 5% of devices roughly.....

  4. Printer not working after installing update to Windows 10

    Windows 10 updates. Installed printer gone?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Please let us know

    1.The make and model of the Printer?

    2.Do you receive any error message?

    Meanwhile please refer to the steps below and see if it helps:

    Step 1: Part of the Windows 10 upgrade process includes installing important software updates to support full functionality of the computer and connected devices. If all updates failed to install, your printer might not work as expected.
    Make sure Windows installed all updates on the computer.


    • Search Windows for Windows update, then click the Windows Update control panel setting in the list of results.

    • Click Check for updates.

      • If updates are available, wait for them to install, restart the computer, then try to print. If you can print, the issue is resolved.

      • If updates are not available or you still cannot print, continue to the next step.

    Step 2: Please refer to the link below to Connect a printer to the PC if its not connected:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/getstarted-connect-to-a-printer

    Hope this helps.

    Please get back to us with the updated status and we will be glad to help you further.
