Windows 10, released an update for the printer problem

Microsoft has released three updates that fix the problem that emerged with printers in recent days. Here's how to install it

Windows 10 has released in these hours an update to fix the problem with printers that emerged in recent days after the security update released on June 9. Microsoft couldn't wait any longer: too much buzz was created by the problem and too many people suffered from it. On the official forum of the Redmond company there were dozens of messages from users complaining about the inability to print, even if the device was turned on and working.

Microsoft released the news of the update directly on its Twitter account: "An optional update is now available for the following versions of Windows 10 in the Microsoft Update catalog to fix a known issue where some printers may not be able to print after installing the updates released on June 9, 2020." The bug has affected all users who have Windows 10 versions 1909, 1903, 1809 and 1803 installed on their computers, that is, all those released in the last two years, excluding Windows May Update 2020.

What the Windows 10 update fixes

In total, Microsoft has released three updates: KB4567512, KB4567513 and KB4567514, each dedicated to a different version of Windows 10. The update goes to fix one of the most serious problems encountered by users after the June 2020 Security Update, the update released on June 9 that went to cover over 100 security holes. What is the malfunction encountered by users? You can't print. The device, even if connected to the PC, is not recognized.

In practice, if you turn on the printer, connect it to the computer and then turn off both devices, the next time you restart the device is no longer recognized, as well as the USB port to which it was connected. A software problem recognized by Microsoft itself and that it was forced to quickly fix.
