    Same issue, cannot print in Windows 10


    Not only can I not print, I cannot open "Devices and Printers" in Control Panel to check out my printer settings. As soon as I try clicking on it... or searching for "printers" in W10's start button search, I get the spinning blue icon that never goes away. Hoping someone has a solution for this. I was printing fine until yesterday and made no changes to any programs or applications in my PC and today... this. I'm wondering if Microsoft snuck in an update that did this.

    You can disable Windows from automatically updating (changing) the printer drivers by downloading the show & hide updates Microsoft utility and using it to stop the changes.

    What printer are you using? What driver? Have you checked the printer manufacturer website for software/driver updates for Win10?
