  3. XPS Writer wont install in Windows 10

    The location to install XPS Writer is different depending on which version of Windows 10 you have. Check if you can find it this way:

    1. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features then select "Turn Windows features on or off."

    2. Verify if XPS Services and XPS Viewer are in the list.

    3. If XPS Services, XPS Viewer, or both are marked with a checkbox, turn both of them off, restart your PC, turn both of them on, then restart your PC again. If they are both already off, turn both of them on then restart your PC.

    4. Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers.

    5. Verify if Microsoft XPS Document Writer is installed as a printer. If Microsoft XPS Document Writer is already installed, secondary click it then select "Remove device." Restart your PC.

    6. Select "Add a printer."

    7. Select "The printer that I want isn't listed" > "Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings."

    8. On the "Choose a printer port" screen, select "Use an existing port" and "PORTPROMPT: (Local Port)."

    9. On the "Install a printer driver" screen, select "Microsoft" in the left pane and "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" in the right pane.

    10. If you are asked "Which version of the driver do you want to use?" select "Use the driver that is currently installed (recommended)."

    You should be able to use XPS Writer as expected after following these steps. Feel free to ask if you need a step clarified, or if XPS Writer still does not work after.
