One of the issues with printers in Windows is that the deleted printer keeps reappearing in the system. Several users complain of this issue, mainly because the problem happens in the middle of an unfinished printing job. If you click to check out what is printing, it is possible to see that there are documents until being processed.
The configuration of the registry might not change even after deleting the printer from Settings app. So, hit Windows + R and then write regedit. Hit OK, and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers. Then, expand the Printers key, and locate the printer to delete. Go to Devices and Printers again to see if that worked.
Apart from the above two steps, you can also use a deleter tool to fix the issue. This will help you remove the printer by running it as administrator. However, before doing that, create a system restore point. Alternatively, you can open Device Manager and go to View, then select Show Hidden Devices. Expand the Software Devices group, and then locate and delete the ghost printer.
This is a good way to delete a ghost printer with minimal hassle.
If none of this works, get in touch with printer repair experts to get the problem fixed as soon as possible. Do not do anything on your Windows computer that you are not sure of. Trained professionals can assist by diagnosing the problem and listing out network printer troubleshooting steps aimed at getting rid of the problem at the earliest.
