Windows 10: Cannot print to wireless printer or PDF since installing Windows10

    Cannot print to wireless printer or PDF since installing Windows10


    This is really frustrating and I'm wasting so much time trying to print hard copy docments or pdf's for mailing. Each attempt results in a 'not responding' message and I have to close the application. My wireless printer does not show up in devices. PDF software is included in apps lists but I still cannot print to pdf. Do I have to re-install my printer and pdf software? So far, for me, Windows 10 is not living up to its promise! Can I get some help please?

    I'd suggest running through the wireless printer setup again (uninstall what you can prior)
    Also, DL the latest drivers/apps for your printer from the manufacturers website (don't use the CD if you have one)

    Thanks, I thought as much.
    I've tried downloading new pdf software - not getting anywhere with this either. It manages partial set-up then freezes. Have tried this a number of times with the same result, so I'm guessing the same will happen with the wireless printer set up!!!
