Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer has just stopped printing word documents.  I deleted the program and reinstalled.  Still not working.  Any suggestions?

Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I reviewed your post and I understand that you are unable to print word documents.


Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.


Are you able to print from other programs?


Meanwhile, I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.


Please press Win + R on your keyboard to get the Run Dialog box. 

Type spool and press enter or click on the OK button. 

This will bring up the spool folder. Right on the 'PRINTERS' folder and select properties. 

On the printer properties popup, click on the Security tab. 

Provide Full Control to all the users listed there. Apply the changes. 

Now open devices and printers from the control panel. 

Right-click on your printer and select printer properties. 

On the printer properties popup, select the Security tab and provide full control/access.

Apply the changes and restart the computer and try to print. 


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
