Make sure that it shows up under Printers and not under Other Devices. I saw some posts that said to avoid using the troubleshooter but I also saw a post that said it had worked for two printers for one poster. I was able to install my Dell printer, Office , with no problems. I did have some luck on the wayback machine. My new printer has four ink cartridge Ha,Ha. Disconnect everything that goes into the printer and disconnect the other ends of those cables, too. I used both the Device Manager and the Devices and Printer feature to look for opportunities to delete the device s and driver.

Otherwise, power down the computer and the printer and do eell cold start. I also had an issue where my touchpad wouldn’t work after the upgrade but thanks to other kind souls who had already figured that one out on this board, that was an easy fix.
I read that some people used the printer troubleshooter.
For me it seemed that the troubleshooter altered the driver in such a way that my printer wouldn’t work, which sent me back to Step 1.
Another bad omen is a cartridge stall error on the printer.
