Dear All,

We enabled printer redirection for our AVD infra, which was working fine as expected. But all of sudden under the printer & scanners (AVD session) I dont see any redirected printer.

But when i try to print any file, it list me the option to print to redirected printer.

I checked the Hostpool properties and found no change. Can someone help to understand this issue.

    @Julie M
    I understand your printer is not visible in Printers & Scanners but does work when you print from an application.

    I suspect this is a Windows issue and not directly related to AVD. I was able to find similar threads where users had similar issues. Please check and try some of these solutions.

    Resources:
    Printer not showing up in devices and printers
    Connected printers not showing in 'Devices and Printers'
    Printer not showing up in Win 10 Printers & Scanners
    RDS Redirected printers not showing up in Control Panel or Settings app

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you are still having issues or need further assistance.
