Check printer connections
One of the most common reasons that bring about the printer settings save errors are the issues or errors with the printer connections. The users should therefore thoroughly check the connections and cables or devices used for making the connections from the printer to the computer or other devices like routers etc before proceeding any further. Reconnecting the printer with the system or device under recommended settings can help solve settings save errors in printers.
User account privileges
Such errors can also happen in a computer if the user is not assigned by the administrator the rights to change the printer settings. So all users should verify the type of account through which the settings change operation was done as that might be causing the issue. The users should log out from the Limited account and should log in again as system Administrator, as doing so can help in successfully saving the changed printer settings without any further issues.
Issues and errors with the printer related services run by the installed Operating System may also create problems while trying to change or save changed printer settings. The users should therefore thoroughly verify that all related services in the system are running and start the necessary services that are not running by default. Doing so can help the users in fixing up the error related with saving of printer settings in the computer.
