    Windows 10 Home Won't Print to Remote Printer


    I have three computers.
    Machine 1: Windows 10 pro, has the USB Brother HL-5040 printer
    Machine 2: Windows 10 pro, prints OK to the remote printer.
    Machine 3: Windows 10 home, Used to print, but not anymore (THIS IS THE PROBLEM).
    I’ve tried everything that I can think of, and would appreciate any suggestions.
    I did these steps on Machine 3 that did not work.

    1. Remove the printer device.
    2. Add a Printer
    3. The printer that I want isn’t listed
    4. Select a shared printer by name
    5. Browse
    6. Select the displayed Machine 1.
    7. Select the displayed Printer.
    8. Next
    9. Failure “Connect to Printer”.
    10. Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or Hostname
    11. Next
    12. Set Hostname to Machine 2, and set port name.
    13. Detecting TCP/IP Port
    14. Additional Port information required.
    15. Device Type – Standard, Brother Port Server
    16. Next
    17. Detecting the Driver Model
    18. Install The Print Driver
    19. Select Brother and Brother HL-5040
    20. Next
    21. Replace the Current Driver
    22. Printer Name (setting it to HL-5040)
    23. Next
    24. Do not share this printer
    25. Next
    26. You’ve successfully added “HL-5040”
    27. Finish
    Printing on Machine 3 puts the document in the print queue, which reports error printing.
    Printing from Machine 2 to the printer on Machine 1 works perfectly.
    All three machines are in the same HomeGroup. Machine 3 can access the shared files from Machine 1.

  3. Printing to XPS fails on Windows 10

    Hi Dan,



    I can understand the inconvenience caused to you. I would be glad to help you.

    I would suggest you to refer the below steps and check if it helps.


    • Search for Device Manager, or do Win + R and then
      DEVMGMT.MSC.

    • Go to 'Print queues' then uninstall both the PDF and XPS print queues.

    • Search for 'Advanced Printer Setup', or look this option in the Control panel.

    • Select 'The printer that I want isn't listed', in the next window choose 'Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings', select 'Use an existing port:' then in the dropdown select 'FILE: (Print
      to File)'.

    • In the next window, it will appear a list. Select Microsoft then in the second list select 'Microsoft Print to PDF' and next.

    • Select 'Replace the current driver' and then next

    • Give the printer a name (I suggest the original name) then next and it shall reinstall the printer and its driver.

    • Repeat the process but now instead of selecting 'Microsoft Print to PDF' in the list, select the XPS one.

    • Restart and see if it prints now.


    Refer the below article for more information.
