Your computer was printing fine before, but now, suddenly, it doesn’t work. No matter what you try to do, nothing seems to be the fix. You’re not alone. If you’re a Microsoft user, chances are you might experience printing problems because of Windows 10 updates that just don’t seem to go away.
Microsoft’s suite of updates over the last six to eight months has caused major printing problems on shared networks, generating error codes, and sometimes – crashing PCs. Luckily, USB printers connected directly to PCs seem to weather the storm. At My Computer Works, we understand how frustrating this is, so we’re here to help you get on the other side of this.
