Trouble Printing? Reset Your Printing System

If you use a Mac and you’re having trouble with a problematic printer, try resetting your Mac’s entire printing system. To do this, open System Preferences> Print & Scan, then right- or Control-click on the white box that contains your list of printers and choose Reset Printing System.


Be aware that this step will delete all of the devices you’ve configured, so you’ll have to set them all up again; however, this often will fix underlying issues when nothing else will.
