Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try this: go to


Control Panel

Hardware section, Devices and Printers

and right-click on your printer's icon, then choose Properties.

In the Properties settings for your printer, look for a 'print directly to printer' option - enable that option, and click on OK until the Properties sheet closes, saving the changed setting.

See if print jobs thereafter are swifter.

(If you wish I can remotely connect to your machine and find the right option for you.)

What option did you change, exactly? I suggest going back and changing it back, first, to see if the printer will now work.
