  • Microsoft launched the KB5026436 for insiders in the Release Preview Channel.
  • Among a plethora of updates is the fix for printers that won’t install.
  • Discover the other enhancements that Microsoft is introducing, as announced by their officials in Redmond.

The Release Preview Channel now has access to Microsoft’s KB5026436 update, as launched by the tech giant. One of the updates included in the KB5026436 release is the resolution for printer installation issues.

This update resolves a problem that impacts specific printers, causing them to be unable to install when automatically connected to Wi-Fi. Additionally, the update also addresses an issue related to the installation of some multi-function label printers.

There are plenty of issues that cause the printer won’t install on Windows 11. We’ve also prepared a set of guides about it, but in short, some of these issues include outdated drivers, software conflicts, lack of permissions/farewell issues, and more.

As you may recall, Windows 11 has had previous issues with printers that it has attempted to resolve. In September 2022, when Microsoft released the Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2), some users experienced a severe printer problem where their device would vanish because it was unable to be detected by the Microsoft IPP Class Driver or Universal Print Class Driver.

Some PC issues are hard to tackle, especially when it comes to corrupted repositories or missing Windows files. If you are having troubles fixing an error, your system may be partially broken.
We recommend installing Restoro, a tool that will scan your machine and identify what the fault is.
