To get rid of the unspecified printer and install your printer, just wait for a little while. Windows 8 will display a printer as unspecified while it finds information about the printer, aquires and installs the drivers. Once it’s fully installed, the unspecified printer will automatically appear in the printer list and the unspecified printer will disappear. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
