Microsoft fixes Windows 10 printer issues

Microsoft announced in the Message center that they issued new out-of-band updates to fix the printing problems that occurred for some users after the updates released in June.

It probably sounds complicated but we will clear this out. We previously reported about a Patch Tuesday update that causes printing problems and more.

To refresh your memory, this is Microsoft’s known issue:

After installing this update, certain printers might fail to print. The print spooler might throw an error or close unexpectedly when attempting to print, and no output will come from the affected printer.

The issue might also affect software-based printers, such as when printing to PDF.

As they were many users affected by this problem, Microsoft issued updates for every major build from 1803 to 1909.

How can I download and install the updates?

First of all, Microsoft advises that only the users that are affected by this printing problem should download and install these patches.

The KB4567512, KB4567513, and KB4567514 are optional updates and are available only on the Microsoft Update Catalog.

That means that you won’t find them in Windows Update and will not install automatically.

For Windows 10, version 1803, you need to install KB4567514

For Windows 10, version 1809, you need to install KB4567513

For Windows 10, version 1903, you need to install KB4567512

For Windows 10, version 1909, you need to install KB4567512

Microsoft added that for other affected versions of Windows they will issue updates in the coming days.

How can I see what is my Windows 10 version?

If you don’t know what version of Windows 10 you have installed, it’s easy to check.

Press the Windows key + R, type winver and select OK. The version will be shown in the second row.
