Windows 10: HP Printer not working under W10S

    HP Printer not working under W10S

    A friend just got upgraded?? from Window 10 to W10S. I don't know how or why this happened. Anyway, his HP Office Jet Pro 6968 does not work anymore. Is this printer 10S compatible?

    I was thinking that perhaps using Services.Msc to change Function Discovery Resource Publication and Fucntion Discovery Provider Host to 'Automatic(Delayed Start) to see if that would fix the problem. I had to do this on my machine when it went from 1703 to 1809 with my HP printer.

    I don't know yet if he has a Windows Old Folder. I he does then I will use it to revert to plain old Windows 10.

    I will appreciate your thoughts on this problem.

    Thank you.

    drivers for S mode have different requirements. may have to reinstall drivers (from .inf file)

    Or switch back to normal mode: | windows-10-in-s-mode-faq

    Can I switch out of S mode on my Windows 10 PC?
    You can switch out of S mode easily at any time through the Microsoft Store within Windows. There is no charge for switching the mode. The switch is one-way; if you make the switch, you won't be able to go back to S mode. See below for important additional limitations when switching out of S mode on devices that use the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
    To learn more or switch out of S mode, go to the Microsoft Store within Windows and search for “switch out of S mode”.
