According to the report published by Windows Latest, the latest Windows update can cause problems for some printer owners. Users reported that they encountered a blue screen when they opened the dialog box to print from Notepad, Office Programs or other programs. Microsoft, on the other hand, has listed the error on its Windows 10 Support page, stating that it is aware that the printing attempt can cause a blue screen on your PC in certain circumstances. While the company hasn’t released a fix yet, it said on its website, “We are currently researching and will provide an update when more information becomes available.”
It is not clear how common the problem is. However, Windows Latest has stated that there are numerous error reports that have popped up. Also, while Windows users focused on Reddit, one person stated that this problem was on all 4 computers. Another said, “We just received 3 phone calls from customers who had the same problem.”
