There are a few possible reasons why your computer is sending print jobs to the wrong computer.
Here are some things you can check:
Make sure the correct printer is selected. When you print, make sure that the correct printer is selected in the print dialog box. You can also check the default printer settings in your operating system.
Check the network settings. If your printers are connected to a network, make sure that the network settings are correct. You may need to renew your IP address or flush your DNS cache.
Reinstall the printer drivers. If the printer drivers are corrupted or outdated, it can cause problems with printing. You can reinstall the printer drivers from the manufacturer’s website.
Reset the print spooler. The print spooler is a service that manages print jobs. If it is not working properly, it can cause print jobs to be sent to the wrong computer.
You can reset the print spooler by following these steps:
- Open the Start menu and search for “services.”
- Click on “Services” in the search results.
- Scroll down and find the “Print Spooler” service.
- Right-click on the “Print Spooler” service and select “Restart.”
