Microsoft has rolled out a fix for the printer issue faced by many Windows 10 users after one of the recent updates.

The update consisting the fix is available for Windows 10 version 1803, 1809, 1903, and 1909. Users with Windows 10 2004 may have to wait longer for the fix.

“An out-of-band optional update is now available on the Microsoft Update Catalog to address a known issue in which certain printers may be unable to print after installing updates released June 9, 2020. We recommend you only install this optional update if you are affected by this issue,” said Microsoft on its docs support.

If you have also faced issues with your printers following the recent Windows 10 update, you will need to manually install the latest patch through Update Catalog.
