Imagine that you are in the middle of a busy workday and you really need to take some printouts, but the printer won’t allow you. This is just one of the many things that can go wrong in an office, but printer issues are by far the worst. One of the most annoying things is when you hit the Print button and nothing happens. All you see is a message at the bottom saying the printer is offline.
When you investigate by checking in the Devices and Printers window, you see the same offline status. This is a fairly common problem, and not one that is hard to fix. Below are a couple of printer offline fix methods you can try.
See if you are able to print. If you still have a problem, then move on to the next method.
Your printer setting can sometimes be changed by the auto-updated printer driver in Windows. In this case, you will need to ensure that there are not problems with the printer.
If the above methods did not work, you may need to try restarting the printer spooler service, or adding a second printer if the connection is over a network.
