Redirect printers disappears from native print dialog.

Copper Contributor



Anyone had problems with redirect printers disappearing after a day or two, but only in some print dialogs?

If I run the following Get-Printer in PowerShell I can still find 3 redirect options:
(omdirigeret = redirected)

If I create a .txt file and open print, it won't show the printer in the dropdown.
If I go to Bluetooth & Devices > Printers & Scanners, it wont show the printer.
Only the local options and printers from Universal Print will show.

But if I open Adobe Pdf Reader, seen on the right side, it shows the redirect printer and the printer is working.

It seems like, the redirect printers disappears from the 'native' print dialog in Windows and from Printers in Control Panel, but they can still be found through PowerShell or if I print from Adobe, Chrome etc. 

So far it seems, that the only solution to get them back is to restart the server. Which isn't really viable.

Any suggestions?
