enable printer sharing. I had the same problem with my printer, I couldn?t get my other computer to see it. But once Ii shared it, the other computer found the printer and installed the printer driver automatically, and everything was all set. You can share the printer in the printer Properties.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
