In Photoshop Print Settings, Printer Set Up, two printers are showing in the list which have been completely removed from my computer. They do not show anywhere I can see, including the Registry.

How can I remove them from the Photoshop list?

Thanks

Hi @spotted-jaguar This sounds like it could be a Windows issue. Do these printers show up in any other apps (i.e., Acrobat, Word, Outlook) or only Photoshop? If only Photoshop, try a Preferences reset, which clears out most problems. Was it a Bluetooth device? You mentioned “Registry.” Does that mean you don't see the printers listed in the Device Manager? Check Services under the Printer Spool, too, to remove any pending print jobs. Let us know what's happening.

Quit Photoshop if running.
Relaunch Photoshop and open the file that you want to print.
Press the Spacebar on your keyboard before you click File > Print. This process resets printer preferences that have been written into the image.
