Edge print preview stuck loading network printers

Copper Contributor

I asked in a previous discussion about Edge print preview not loading but it didn't appear to be the same issue so raising a new one. 

Is anyone else experiencing issues with the print preview taking ages to load and/or not responding? 

I noticed that if I changed the printer to Microsoft Print to PDF printed and then went to print again the box would load instantly. However if the last used printer was a network printer this is when the slow loading and not responding starts. Even changing printers from Microsoft Print to PDF to a network print would result in Edge not responding. 

I have tried ruling out our proxy, clearing caches etc. I am on the latest version Version 112.0.1722.39 (Official build) (64-bit).

I have had the same issue.  Print function works fine and at normal speed with other programs, but very slow with Edge  v. 112.0.1722.39.  Keen to find a solution.@Maisie92 

Yes we are the same works fine in Chrome and everything else but not Edge. Hoping to find a solution.
Also I'm waiting for the solution for this issue : our customer got the same "slow motion" wainting for the print preview . Edge ver. 112.0.1722.39 (I've also tried to uninstall, but previous cml instructions doesn't work anymore).

It's an issue in the chromium-project. 

https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1424368

 

They have already published a fix. Chrome has already received an update and it works fine.

I hope the MS team will fix the problem just as quickly and provide an update today and not in days/weeks.

Thank you for this very helpful. Will look out for an update to resolve the issue.
To confirm update ha resolved the issue. Hope it has for everyone else
