Windows 10

Thank you
Can you disconnect the printer from the computer
Then press the windows key and type in devices and click on devices and printers.
Once done, restart the computer and install the printer again like you did when you first received it.
When installed, tell me please if you can now print to it
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Else let me know the results please

What do you now see on your screen Ann from Teamviewer.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Page keeps telling me to close Teamviewer I cannot get any further than the first. It tells me in a pop-up that a

another version is running but I cannot access it

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
If it is telling you to close it it means you already have it open on your computer, so look at all the windows you have open as one of them is Teamviewer.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No luck but can try compatibility settings. Still cannot close . I must seem very silly but I just cannot get this program to run, have tried to delete other installations of program but cannot close because version is still running.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.

your running it many times at the same time....

Restart your computer, then take your time and open the program Teamviewer as it is installed on your computer.

Then it will give you the ID and Password

Please take your time doing this as your rushing through and this is why you get the issues.

Thank you
