Windows 10: Can’t print a test page from Settings

August 10, 2019

After I set up my printer on my new Windows 10 computer, I tried to print a test page from Settings (Settings > Devices > Printers & scanners, select printer, then Manage) but I got a rundll32.exe permissions error.

So I tried from the old-style Control Panel (Control Panel > Devices and Printers, right-click on the printer, then select Printer Properties, then click Print Test Page). That worked fine, confirming that printing worked—it just wouldn’t print a test page from the new Settings options. Printing from Word and other programs also worked; it was just the Settings option where it didn’t work.
