Issue: [Fix] Printer allows only Default settings after upgrading to 22H2 in Windows 11

Hello. I have a problem with the default settings related to the printer. I updated my Windows 11, and now the printer allows only Default settings after upgrading. No printers are found, and I can't add them again. Why is this version doing so? Can I fix the issue somehow myself?
