  • Hi. 

    1. Please install last windows updates for Windows 11.

    2. Please check Windows 11 driver for your printer model. Some old printers are not support by new Windows core or integrated drivers in Windows 11.

    How to troubleshoot a Printer

    Many times we face problems printing. To find and solve the issues, we can run a troubleshooter.

    Go to Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Printers & Scanners. Select the printer of your choice to view the printer settings.

    Click "Run the troubleshooter" to start the troubleshooter

  • Hi AthenaBarnarda. Thank you for the question. If you want to change the features of your printer (or even the preferences it follows), you can do it in your device's settings. Go to Bluetooth & Devices, select Printers & Scanners or Control Panel (whichever your system follows), then click through Hardware and Sound, and then Devices and Printers. Select the Printer you want to adjust and make your changes. By the way, this is for printers that run on Windows 11. Hope this helps.

  • I've seen a few posts here recommending you troubleshoot your printer. I agree with what's being said here and I thought I'd give you another way of troubleshooting that works. It's very simple and requires little to no work on your part. To troubleshoot your printer, go to settings then move through the following options: system, troubleshoot, other troubleshooters. Choose the printer option and press 'run'. The program should study your printer and point out anything that's wrong.

  • I haven't got about "comments and location", screenshot will be helpful.

    Everybody here already provided the info where to check printer setting, moreover I recommend to everyone for printers first to look for last version driver exactly to your win system on webpage of the printer manufacturer and not to use the standard drivers from Windows in the mode plug n play even if it displays correctly your model. Driver could be outdated as well

  • Solution
    Chose the navigation path for your computer's operating system: Windows 11 - from the Desktop, select the Start menu > Settings > Bluetooth & devices. Then, select Devices and Printers. 
    Right-click your model name icon, and then select Printer properties from the displayed menu.

  • Important note: Don't buy Microsoft's official Office 365 subscription. Office 365 does poorly. Printing a file can get stuck and crash from time to time.. Better use office2019 or office2021.... Don't listen to Microsoft fool you that it is not authorized.. That's scary!!

    365 is a mess!!

    Microsoft's trade secret is authorization. Without copyright protection, Microsoft will not get any benefits!!

    Another trade secret is to find ways to earn more money from users.. Even if you charge, you don't do a good job of the product. You just sell it if it is badly done. This is killing Xiaobai consumers!!

    In addition to making money, it is making money. Is there any business ethics??? Not at all..

    A 365 is actually a way to make users pay for it. If they don't pay for it, they won't use it. That's why..

    Permanently licensed Microsoft knows it is wrong, so it won't sell????

    If users don't upgrade, Microsoft will change its ways to let users upgrade. This is the internal big business secret!!

    So I can also start a company!!

    The second trade secret is to drive the development of one-click, so that users and developers have to pay Microsoft for this!! And it has to be used.

    The third trade secret is that any IT personnel understand that the database stores the data of Microsoft accounts. Everyone knows that the internal regulations cannot be deleted and the device cannot be unbound. It is all deceiving.. Microsoft uses software code to generate a character-based so-called hardware ID for computer hardware, and then enters it into the Microsoft database. After purchasing a one-time license, Microsoft directly binds the device in the database. Microsoft never opens how to unbind the device, and after-sales is a piece of shit!!! Everyone knows that Du Ming doesn't want to scold. I will scold him today!!!

    Delete and continue to send!!, The Internet is spreading everywhere!!

    The fourth trade secret is to plan ARM layout and mobile device layout, but tell you, it's too late!!!!

    The fifth trade secret: selling hardware. In fact, we buy brand notebooks and PCs with genuine office and windows, but the price of computers increases year by year. What's the matter?? Microsoft is playing tricks, charging licensing fees behind the scenes and making money. Many people directly assemble and use pirated software. What's the matter?? Receive updates as well as viruses!! The price is much cheaper!! Sooner or later, everyone will see clearly that the face-surface is a scum, it is not a cheap product!!! There are licensing fees behind!!

    The sixth trade secret: depending on the law, the law is not omnipotent. If the government of a country does not benefit the people, talking about the law has no meaning, and can refuse to implement the judgment, you are not afraid to stab you with a knife, even the police are afraid, you are not afraid

    The seventh thing I want to say is that we should work together to kick Microsoft out of the world's top 500. This Microsoft is not worthy of being a top 500, because the most basic business ethics are not mentioned!!

    The eighth trade secret: promote cloud services to let users' private data flow around the world. The front desk is still talking about protecting privacy, while the back office secretly uses privacy to advertise! And it has spread to windows and office.. Without the network, some functions can't be used. What's more annoying is that Windows 11 actually restricts hardware and requires a Microsoft account to install. This has already been cracked, needless to say!!

    There are many more, you can guess, don't say more!!

    It's time for Microsoft to reflect!!

    Why don't users accept your solution, and don't accept the iterative update of your 10-year generation of products, and the update will need to pay extra. Do you think users will buy this account???

    Why do users still complain that Windows is not good!! Why do many people use mac without windows!!

    Don't Microsoft know it!!!!!

  • In the event that your preliminary has lapsed, you can involve this product with the expectation of complimentary enactment. It permits you to actuate Windows 10 with lifetime legitimacy. When you download Windows 10 loader, it gets your adaptation refreshed naturally. There is no requirement for additional actuation.

  • Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot this issue: 

    1. Update the Printer Drivers: Outdated drivers can cause issues with the printer properties. So, update the printer drivers to their latest version from the manufacturer's website.  
    2. Check the Printer Settings: Check whether the Location and Comments fields are set correctly in the Printer settings. In the Devices and Printers window, right-click the printer and choose Printer properties. From the General tab, check whether the Location and Comments fields are correct.
    3. Check the Registry: Check the Windows Registry, as it stores printer properties. When the Windows Registry stores incorrect values for printer properties, it displays incorrect data. To fix this, you can try deleting the printer from the Devices and Printers window, then open the Registry Editor (type "regedit" in the Start menu search bar) and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers. Find the printer you just deleted and delete its entire registry key. Then reinstall the printer and check if the properties are displaying correctly.
    4. Use the Printer Management Tool: It is a built-in tool for Windows that allows users to manage printers and their properties. In the Search bar, type 'printmanagement.msc' to go to the Printer Management tool. Check whether the values of the Location and Comments fields are correct. 

    I hope one of these solutions will work for you.

  • Open the Control Panel by typing "Control Panel" in the Windows search bar and clicking on the corresponding result.

    Click on the "Devices and Printers" option.

    Right-click on the printer whose properties you want to update and select "Printer Properties."

    Click on the "General" tab.

    Update the Location and Comments fields as desired.

    Click "OK" to save your changes.

  • Update your windows systems and drivers.

  • Please update your printer driver to the latest. Also those two fields can be manually changed to whatever you want. Go into the control panel right click the printer in question select properties and manually change them.
