Microsoft has now rolled out a new Windows 10 update KB5001566 with a fix for this printer issue. “Addresses an issue that might cause a blue screen when attempting to print to certain printers using some apps and might generate the error, APC_INDEX_MISMATCH,” Microsoft explained in its release notes. You can download the new update by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, and then click Check for Updates. Your system will notify you anyway about the new update, and prompt you to install it.

This update is only to fix the printer issue caused with the previous version.
