Control panel shows 3 printers when I have only 1
I recently installed a printer, a Dell v305w & it I did a little print job &
also scanned a document which I emailed. Everything went fine. Last night I
tried to print a document and it wouldn't print. Now I look in the control
panel under printers & it shows my v305 PLUS M/S office doc image writer AND
M/S XPS doc writer. I googled these & sort of get an idea why they showed up
suddenly BUT how do I get my printer to work again? Where & how should I
place these M/S operations so that they don't interfere with what I'm trying
to do. Remember please that I'm new at this and am Trying To Learn.

Make sure the Dell printer is the default. Think of the others as 'virtual
printers'. If you will never need them, simply disable them.
