There are times when you want to print a webpage or document and see a message like the one below even though you have all the printers and drivers installed.
Since the error says that there are no printers installed the most logical solution would be to check why it is giving you this error, so you head to the printers in control panel.
Most of the times you will see that the printers are missing from the available devices and when you try to install a printer you will see an error like the one below.
Case of the Missing Printers
As you can see from the error above the printers are missing due to the Print spooler service being disabled or stopped, you can restart your computer to get the printers back. But why waste time when you can do it without restarting the PC.
Here are the steps to get your missing printers back without having to restart the PC.
Step 1: Press Windows Key + R to open the run box and type in services.msc.
Step 2: The services window will open, in that find Print Spooler and start the service.
Once you have done that refresh or reopen the printer page from control panel and you will see that all your printers should reappear again.
While you are printing please try and save the environment use a add-in to print what you want or an excellent service that will allow you to save pages and inks by removing data and images you do not want to print. Happy Printing.
To overcome this error, I had told you about some simple steps you can do on your end to avoid operation aborted errors, to add to that the IE blog today wrote a extensive tutorial that will help developers to avoid visitors from seeing the dreaded error on their websites.
The post is pretty detailed and talks about possible scenarios the error will occur in and the steps you can take to debug your code to track such errors.
Definitely useful considering the fact that IE still holds a considerable share in the browser market, so no matter whether you love it or hate it, you still have to code for it.
