Accidentally deleted "Printers" in Windows 7 Settings Pane

Jump to solution

Hi, I was recently having issues printing from Windows 7 VM in Fusion 4.1.3. I had the brilliant idea to to remove the port inside the printers settings pane. Now, the printers pane no longer exists and I want it back. How would I go about reinstalling it?

Hi Jaydon,

You can get it back following steps:

1. Shutdown your VM

2. Open the Settings pane of the VM

3. Click Add Device... button

4. You should see Printer icon, double click it

If you can not see the icon, please make sure you didn't select wrong OS type on Settings > General pane.
