Printer does not work on Windows 10, we can solve it in a minute
Hello everyone today, let’s talk about the situation when the printer does not work on Windows 10. After upgrading to Windows 10, many users encountered problems with their printers and MFPs, which either the system does not see, or they are not detected as a printer, or simply do not print as it was in the previous version of the OS, the funny thing is that with each new update, the number of old devices that this operating system supports is decreasing, so do not be surprised if at some point your old printer does not start.
If your printer does not work properly in Windows 10, this manual contains one official and several additional methods that can help fix the problem. I will also give additional information regarding support for printers of popular brands in Windows 10 (at the end of the article).
Windows 10 support information from printer manufacturers
Below I have collected information about what popular manufacturers of printers and MFPs write about the work of their devices in Windows 10.
- HP (Hewlett-Packard). The company promises that most of its printers will work. Those that worked on Windows 7 and 8.1 will not require a driver update. In case of problems, you can download the driver for Windows 10 from the official website. Additionally, the HP website has instructions for solving problems with printers from this manufacturer in new operating systems: http://support.HP.com/en-us/document/c04755521
- Epson. Promise to Support Printers and MFPs in Windows The necessary drivers for the new system can be downloaded from the dedicated page http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportWindows10.jsp
- Canon. according to the manufacturer, most printers will support the new OS. Drivers can be downloaded from the official website by selecting the required printer model.
- Panasonic. promises to release drivers for Windows 10 in the near future.
- Xerox. write about the absence of problems with the operation of their printing devices in the new OS.
To eradicate all problems that interfere with normal printing in your Windows 10, run the Print-Spooler-Repair-Tool as administrator and click the “Repair” button, you will get the result, in a minute, in the overwhelming majority of cases, your printer starts working in a dozen of cases, like brand new.
In addition, I also advise you to clear your spooler, with this script, so that there are no stuck tasks.
If none of the above helped, I recommend using Google search (and I recommend this particular search for this purpose) for a query consisting of the name of the brand and model of your printer and “Windows 10”. It is very likely that your problem has already been discussed in some forums and a solution has been found. Do not be afraid to look at English-language sites: they come across the solution more often, and even automatic translation in the browser allows you to understand what is at stake.
What is a driver for and what is its role? Using a specific device as an example, we will consider the possibilities that this software gives us:
