    Printer Problem ?


    Hi,

    I have a Brother printer (incredibly reliable) that I have been using with my iMac.

    But, when trying to use with a new W10 pc, it won't work.

    Are there, perhaps, any additional drivers, etc., that i should
    download to have it work with the W10 pc, too ?

    Or,...?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    :)

  3. Printer offline problem persists

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things:

    • Is it a wired or wireless printer?
    • Is the printer connected via network to your computer?
    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to make printer as a default printer you can follow the below steps:

    • Press Windows key+ X and select
      device manager
      .
    • Select devices and printers
    • Right click on the printer you want to use, and then click
      set as default printer (You'll see a check mark on the printer's icon signifying that it's now your default printer).
    I suggest you to update the drivers for the printers and check if it helps.

    Method 2: I also recommend you to run the print troubleshooter to check the issue.

    • Type troubleshooter in the search box and then press enter.
    • In the left pane click on View all.
    • Select the printer option and
      follow the on screen instructions.
    Method 3: Also I suggest you to run the troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.
