Windows 10: Where are my printers????

    Where are my printers????

    Windows 10 does its update without my permission and Adobe PDF printer is gone, my Xerox printer is gone, my network printers on other machines are gone and Microsoft thinks they are professional? This isn't funny but it is malicious and nasty and damn rotten.

    Anybody help? Thanks

    Yea i felt the same when my HP Photosmart drivers and software was uninstalled now it show my HP printer as broken or unknown in device manager and it no longer will allow me to reinstall the software, so i thought okay i will just use my canon and i uninstalled the remains of the HP software well i won't make that mistake twice when i rebooted my PC i ran into a BSOD i ofc had made a image before uninstalling the software and that saved me but now i have a useless printer showing up as unknown or broken but the scanner is picked up as working i will never get that
