Microsoft does not say which printers had been affected by the pesky bug, but according to a report by The Verge Kyocera, Ricoh, and Zebra printers were among those impacted.
If you’re affected by this bug and need to download the fix then head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and then click Check For Updates.
This should resolve the issue. In the run-up to the fix’s release Microsoft had offered a workaround for this problem, but if you weren’t comfortable entering commands into Command Prompt it could have been a bit of a headache.
The first step of that fix was to find out if your printer was in the affected subset Type 3 category.
The Redmond-based tech giant explained how to check whether your printer needs a type 3 driver in a post online…
• Press the Windows key+r or select Start and type run and select it.
• Type printmanagement.msc and press enter or select the OK button.
• If Print Management opens, continue to the next step. If you receive the error, Windows can not find ‘printmanagement.msc’. then select Start and type manage optional features and select it. Select Add a Feature and type print, select the check box next to Print Management Console and select install. You will now need to start the first step again.
• Expand Print Servers, expand your computer’s name, and select Printers.
• You can now see the Driver Type for each of your installed printer drivers.
