    Workgroup printers not printing in Win 10 20H2


    We are having a workgroup of 20+ PCs & 10+ laser / inkjet printers. Till recent everything was alright but since 2nd week of Sept '21 we are facing a problem where printing locally is working but network shared printing is not working. all PCs are visible to each other under network, All shared folders are accessible as earlier, even under each PC its shared printers are visible. I if double click such printer. It shows empty print queue, indicating it is installed on guest PC. But if I give a printout from guest PC it disappears within fraction from the queue but nothing prints. I hav

    can't print from win 10 to printer attached to mac


    many tks for replies guys
    spapakons -- i checked out all your sugg. windows sharing was enabled. the selected printer is shared with smb. workgroup is the same as the win workgroup (WORKGROUP). if i can only print from 1 machine, i'd rather it be the win 10 pc, so i have moved the printer from the mac to the win 10 pc. same issue as before - the mac and the xp pc will not print. the print jobs are going to the que but the printer does not come to life. as mentioned in an earlier post, i am able to share files between all three but can't print (except from the machine the printer is attached to) i'm all out of ideas, options, and things to try and don't really know where to go from here.
    again guys, tks for the suggestions.

  3. Windows 20H2 - All Printers Offline - Need to Restart Print Spooler Every Time to Print

    Hi

    I updated to Windows 10 Pro 20H2 through the Windows 10 October 2020 Update Assistant. Every since, whenever I go to print something, I find the printers are offline and won't print. The only way to get something to print is to go to Services and restart
    the Print Spooler. Every print job is this way. It was not like this before the update to 20H2. Any suggestions?

    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.
