Can’t find your printer?

There is a possibility that Windows won’t be able to find your printer. It’s not the end of the world, and the problem might be quickly fixed if you try manually connecting the printer to Windows 10. We’ll have to go through a wizard to accomplish this. This is how:

  1. Open Windows search by pressing Windows Key + Q.
  2. Type in “printer.”
  3. Select Printers & Scanners.
  4. Hit Add a printer or scanner.
  5. Choose The printer that I want isn’t listed.
  6. Select Add a Bluetooth, wireless or network discoverable printer.
  7. Choose the connected printer.

If your printer is still hidden, check to see if it is turned on and if your Windows 10 PC and the printer are connected to the same local network.

 

Change the default printer

Windows will make an effort to choose the most recently used printer on the network connection as the default printer. The OS will be able to remember which printer to use when switching between networks thanks to this default setting, which is toggled on. Fortunately, it’s fairly simple to disable this functionality if you don’t need or want it.

  1. Open Windows search by pressing Windows Key + Q.
  2. Type in “printer.”
  3. Select Printers & Scanners.
  4. Turn “Let Windows manage my default printer” to off.
  5. Select the printer you wish to set as default from the list of devices.
  6. Select Manage.
  7. Hit Set as default.

 

Thanks.
