Solution for special characters printing interruption in Microsoft Edge 109
Microsoft recently released a feature update to Edge version 109 for its browser that is now available in the stable channel, and you can read about the changes in our dedicated coverage. While the release notes do not mention any known issues, users have noticed that the browser has had difficulty working with certain printers after updating to version 109. Affected operating systems include Windows 10 and 11.
Printers with special characters in their names, such as Ü (umlaut) in German, can cause Edge's print interface to hang and crash after pressing Ctrl + P or selecting the print option, according to Borncity.com. Affected users can work around this error by using the native Windows print interface (Ctrl + Shift + P) or by removing the special characters from the printer. Other customers have said that enabling Internet Explorer mode for the page they want to print solves the problem. For most users, however, renaming the problematic printer would be the best solution.
- Open the Settings application and go to Bluetooth and Devices > Printers and Scanners.
- Click on the printer containing the special characters.
- Select Printer Properties.
- Click Change Properties and rename the printer.
Interestingly, this bug does not affect other Chromium-based browsers, such as Google Chrome.
