    i seem to recall last time i had this fix few years ago the lag was caused by it trying to download the printers icon instead of just displaying the generic one

    Yeah, this is recent, and very annoying. Every other bit of software on the PC will see the driver, but the one place you need to change default settings doesn't show anything for a while. Gotta love Windows Updates...

    It has to do with how you access Printers. I just downloaded and installed the Ricoh IM C8000. I installed it by using Add Printer from the Printers folder, NOT Settings or Control Panel. I can access the Printers folder because I use Classic Shell.

    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.

    I have it pinned to my taskbar. It's very easy to see printers offline or WSD installs from there which is important to me.

    I remember this was a problem like 1-2 years ago but don't have the fix anymore, was similar with what you posted related to the manufacturer icons nod downloading or something.
