Whenever you print documents in Windows 8 or Windows 10 they do not print and the printer appears Offline.
Often times the printer will go offline and not come back online until you reboot. Microsoft points to the vendor drivers as the cause and the vendor usually point a Microsoft as the cause.
A temporary work around is to restart the print spooler service. This will save you from having to reboot. To restart the print spooler follow these steps:
- Open “Computer Management”
- In the “Computer Management” window click “Computer Management->->Services and Applications->Services”.
- Right click on “Print Spooler” and choose “Restart”.
