Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
Is the printer you're trying to get rid of a network printer or was it attached to
your computer with a USB cable?
Try this to see if it gets rid of the printer:
Close Devices and Printers.
Right-click the start menu button and select Run.In the Run box type: services.msc and click OK.In the Services window scroll down to Print Spooler.Right-click on it and select Restart.
Once it finishes, open Devices and Printers and check.
