Universal Print allows IT departments to configure their organization's printers so that employees can print seamlessly from any device, and for organizations to lower the cost of printing, while supporting their business needs. Printer manufacturers, software providers, and service providers can build on the cloud service to deliver advanced functionality.
Universal Print is for customers who are moving to the cloud and need the ability to print using a cloud service, as Azure Active Directory joined devices are unable to discover printers on local print servers. Therefore, customers seek a solution from Microsoft to remove the need for on-premises print servers and gateways.
A Universal Print ready / compatible printer is a printer that has a Universal Print compatible firmware.Printer manufacturers are releasing new printers that are Universal Print ready. Printers currently in the market may become Universal Print ready with firmware updates. See the Universal Print web page to find out more about Universal Print ready printers and print solutions from our partners.
Starting with iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, apps are required to ask your permission when they want to track you across apps and websites owned by other companies. You can change your preference for any app or prevent apps from asking for permission entirely in Settings.
The apostrophe shortcoming is inherent to macOS whether the user authenticates with their apostrophe-enabled username on a print queue advertised from Mobility or a print queue published directly from an AirPrint-enabled printer. At the time of this writing, we have yet to determine whether this lapse is due to CUPS, macOS, both, or something else entirely.
Make sure you update to the latest printer driver (a program that controls your printer). Printer manufacturers offer updated drivers to improve compatibility with newer software, such as newer versions of Reader and Acrobat.
But ultimately, relying on any one app to protect your system, data, and privacy is a bad bet, especially when almost every antivirus app has proven vulnerable on occasion. No antivirus tool, paid or free, can catch every malicious bit of software that arrives on your computer. You also need secure passwords, two-factor logins, data encryption, systemwide backups, automatic software updates, and smart privacy tools added to your browser. You need to be mindful of what you download and to download software only from official sources, such as the Microsoft App Store and Apple Mac App Store, whenever possible. You should avoid downloading and opening email attachments unless you know what they are. For guidance, check out our full guide to setting up all these security layers.

This is due to a code-signing snafu affecting macOS Catalina (version 10.15) and Mojave (10.14), specifically. HP's printer driver software is cryptographically signed with a certificate that macOS uses to determine whether the application is legit and can be trusted. However, that certificate was today revoked through an XProtect update, causing the software to be rejected by Macs.
\"Yes, my Deskjet F4140 abruptly stopped working with both my Mac mini desktop AND my partner's AirBook,\" complained another. \"The AirBook keeps insisting it's malware (it's not), while my desktop says the certificate has expired. Suddenly, HP and Apple are NOT playing well together! I've redownloaded and reinstalled the printer software TWICE now but nothing has changed, just the same message about HP Utility now missing. Our jobs depend on this printer, HP.\"
The Register understands from sources familiar with the matter that HP Inc asked Apple to revoke its printer driver code-signing certificates. It appears this request backfired as it left users unable to print. A HP Inc spokesperson told us on Friday night:
If your computer was not able to locate a driver for the printer, or if you got the error above asking for additional port information, the next dialogue will ask you to INSTALL THE PRINT DRIVER. From the left side of the table, select the MANUFACTURER of the printer. From the right side of the table select the PRINTER MODEL. If the printer you are trying to install is available in the INSTALL THE PRINT DRIVER dialogue, select it and say NEXT, then FINISH.

Yes, Simplify3D supports connecting to your 3D printer over WiFi and Ethernet connections. The software also supports auto-discovery, which makes finding and setting up a new networked 3D printer fast and easy.
Yes, Simplify3D already supports many printers using an auto-leveling probe. The software allows you to customize the starting script that is used at the beginning of each print, so if you wish to add auto-leveling to this script, go to the Scripts tab of your process settings and make sure you have a G28 and then a G29 command at the beginning of this script. Please note that the G28 command needs to come before the G29 to ensure that you have properly homed your axes before attempting to probe the bed surface.
To re-download a profile provided by Simplify3D, go to Help > Configuration Assistant from within the software and select your printer model from the list. This will download a fresh copy of this profile and configure the software for this machine.
First of all, please keep in mind that most 3D printers only allow a single application to be connected at any given time. Close any other programs that could be communicating with the printer. Some programs such as MakerBot Desktop have background services that need to be stopped by opening the application and going to Services > Stop Background Service.
USB:If you are using the software on Windows, you should make sure you have installed the appropriate USB drivers for your 3D printer. In some cases, this will happen automatically when you connect the 3D printer to your computer, but in other cases, you may need to install the driver manually. Contact your printer manufacturer for more information about the correct driver to install for your 3D printer model. If you are already any to connect to the 3D printer from a different software program, then you likely already have the correct drivers installed.
