    Make the printer the default printer

    Check if your printer you are waiting to print from is the default printer to your system. You can make the printer your default printer by clicking ‘Start‘, and then click ‘Printers and Faxes‘ to open the ‘Printers‘ folder, if the desired printer does not have a check mark next to it, right-click the printer icon and then click ‘Set as Default Printer‘. You can right-click on the printer icon, and then click on the ‘Print Test Page‘ to print a Windows self-test page.

    Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the printer driver, my friend.
