WordPad is no longer broken



If you didn't see my last post on here, WordPad wasn't starting as quickly as it should've been on my laptop. I tried everything I could possibly think of to fix it or at least diagnose it, but everything failed.

I was recently thinking about things that could have some form of input into how WordPad works (which isn't much, it's got about as many settings as a light switch) and thought about the Windows Print Spooler service. For those of you wondering what the hell I'm talking about, the Windows Print Spooler is the menu that pops up every time you're printing a page. I was wondering whether the printer drivers were taking a while to initialize, so I decided to look at them.

As to be expected from me, I apparently never got around to installing the drivers for either printer, and I think we can all agree that the stock Microsoft drivers are like Arthritis for your computer. After installing the Brother driver, WordPad was finally back to the kind of snappiness I was used to. Ask a doctor if printer drivers are right for you.
