    Can't Find Printers and Faxes


    Just came from Win 7 and am looking for my "Printers and Faxes" folder or its equivalent. Is there such a thing in W 10? If so, will someone point me to it?

    Thank you.

    Right click on your USB icon on the taskbar.

    Thank you. I found the link pointing to Devices and Printers in the control panel where you said it would be. Funny though, I looked in Control Panel but didn't see Devices and Printers. 'Tis hell to get old.

    Thanks again.

    If you've got all devices and drivers installed and you view Control Panel by Large icons, it should be in there.

    You can also start printers from the run box by typing: control printers

    Or add a Start Menu (Classic Shell, Start8, StartIsBack ...) and it's in there as well.
