What happened to the Printers folder?

In this version of Windows, the Printers folder has been replaced by Devices and Printers, a more flexible and comprehensive way to manage all the peripherals hooked up to your computer.

To open Devices and Printers

  • Open Devices and Printers by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then, on the Start menu, clicking Devices and Printers.

Devices and Printers might look and behave differently, but it still performs all the important print-related tasks formerly handled by Printers. For more information, see Install a printer, Change your default printer, or Print a document or file.
