Windows Update

Ours just happened today.
One interesting change is no more HomeGroup, not sure if that's going to screw up sharing or printing for Mary, we'll see.
There's some big warning that it screws up Destiny2, CoDMW, and Apex Legends frame rates really bad.
Luckily didn't seem to effect Overwatch tonight, so, yay.
My headset sounds like it's in surround sound instead of stereo, so that's cool asswell.

After endless dicking around we've given up on ever printing from Mary's laptop again.
Tried everything multiple times. Drivers, sharing, google... nothing.
Eat shit, Windows.

Windows 10? You getting errors or what's the deal? Can you even see the printer on your network?

In her settings it shows the printer offline, and is set as default. On mine and prints ok. I've tried sharing it, downloading driver onto her computer from Brother site, running troubleshooter, everything else I can think of. Used to work fine, now it doesn't.

I'd try completely removing the printer from Windows, downloading the discovery software (not just the drivers) and running the setup from scratch again. You should be able to also manually add the printer by the IP.... you can get the IP from the printer settings screens. If you can find that you could try running the install through Windows again also.

Starting from scratch sounds good, I'll try that.
