Resolved Question:

I have just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8, and I have already encountered two problems:
a) I can connect to my printer to print e-mails, but it will no longer connect with the printer to print attachments or any other form of image
b) the icon called 'Control Panel' has vanished, so that I am no longer able to right click on that, right click on 'Devices & Printers', and then left click on the image of my printer, in order to start a scan

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.1. You have to reinstall the printer driver to make the printer work on windows 10 and the printer should be compatible to windows 10.2.

1. But the printer driver is already installed, and is compatible with windows 10, or I would not be able to print my e-mails. How do I reinstall it ?
