Missing Printers

If there are no printers in the PRINTERS AND FAXES window, the Print Spooler service may not be running.

Restart the Print Spooler service:

Go to START > RUN and type “cmd” to open a command prompt window. Type the following commands pressing ENTER after each line:

net stop spool
net start spool

Check the PRINTERS AND FAXES window to see if the printers show up.

Applies to Windows XP, 2000.
