    Yes, I always use the OEM print driver.

    Seeing the same thing when doing thru control panel or start icon. Seems to be the latest windows 11 update. Seem to start in last 30 days.

    ... I would agree. The slow to populate printer icon update seems to be a recent Win 11 update issue.

    I have had a similar situation years ago at a school district. If someone scanned something to their assigned folder on the file server, it would take an extended length of time before they could see it in their folder but the IT could login as administrator and it was there. I found that if they either went up or down one folder level and then back it was there. They had just updated from Server 2012 R2 to Server 2016.

    So far nothing in the Windows Release Health page for this for Windows 10 or 11, unless it's related to the HP SmartApp issue: Windows 11, version 23H2 known issues and notifications | Microsoft Learn

    We had a similar problem many years ago with Windows 8 (or 8.1?). I was solved in a Windows update.
    The we saw this again a couple a years ago after a W10 update. It was also solved after a Windows update but until this was released we used the solution I posted earlier.
    Now the problem is back after a Windows update and the same solution seems to work but hopefully there will be a OS update this time also.

    In my experience, launching a print job (from notepad for example) will bring up the printer in the control panel/settings menu, so you can change the preferences and default options.
    Also if it's not a Windows Home, you can open printmanagement.msc and the interface is IMO better to install and manage than the Settings.

    Settings is the worse thing Microsoft ever introduced IMO. Trying to dumb it down to be like Mac I guess

    I have this problem too, even with some Windows 10 pc.
    In addition, Windows automatically adds printers that I had deleted because they are no longer present.

    For the problem of this post, I found a quick solution, because I don't feel like waiting (and I don't always have the time...).
    Once I have finished installing the printer, if I see that the icon doesn't appear, I close all the windows settings, open a Word file, click to print, and there I can select the printer I have just installed.
    Now the printer icon is also present in settings.

    It seems almost like a device refresh problem.
