My Printers Are Not Showing Up.

My Printers Are Not Showing Up.


When I log onto my computer, none of the printers I am used to seeing are there, or I don't have any printers at all.


Try restarting or relogging into the PC.


Windows PCs are controlled by a series of permissions and scripts in an enterprise environment such as ours. Normally when you log into your PC, a printer script runs that looks at the current location of your PC, and assigns printers based on that location. Sometimes that script can get interrupted or not even execute properly, so the printers get all messed up. The fastest solution is normally just to log out, and log back in again. Failing that a full restart of the computer will normally cause the script to function properly.

Make sure to give the PC a minute after logging in to insure you don't interrupt any log on scripts that may still be executing in the background.
