Hi NikkiPE,

Open Control Panel - Programs and Features

Select 'Turn Windows Features on or off' on the left side

Scroll to the bottom of that list

Turn off XPS Services and XPS Viewer

Restart your PC and turn those services back on


Then, go to Control Panel - Devices and Printers.
Click Add Printer
Choose Add a Local Printer
Select Use an Existing Port
Select XPS Port and click Next
In the manufacturer list, choose Microsoft
On the right side, choose the latest version of the XPS document writer and click Next
Choose the driver currently installed, click next, and click finish.

For PDF documents, you don't require XPS writer. You require any PDF writer. Microsoft has Microsoft Print to Pdf printer for this. (Many third party utilities are also out there free of cost to provide pdf printing)

If your question is specifically about Microsoft XPS Document Writer -

1. Windows Key+I > Devices > Printers and Scanners > See whether Microsoft XPS Document Writer is here or not?

2. If not, can you follow the link below to reinstall it?
