Issues with Brother mfc l3770cdw reinstalling drivers and software.

Mar 6, 2023
My wife was having trouble with the printer, so I used the Brother driver uninstall tool to uninstall the driver, then I installed the most current "Full Driver & Software Package". Everything looked good, it created a cute little icon in the tray I could click on to check printer status. But I noticed I now had 2 Brother 3770... printers in "printers and scanners" the 2nd one with a (1) after it. That bothered me, and I knew it would confuse my wife. So I deleted one of them, then the sys tray icon turned red and didn't function as it had been. So I started over, uninstalled the drivers, and reinstalled them again. But this time I got no systray icon, and in "iPrint&scan" it say "install the driver" under print... I found no way to "install the driver" other than installing the Full Driver & Software Package I had already installed, twice. So I tried it 1 more time, still same issues. The printer does work, but it triggers my OCD that the systray icon didn't show up after the 1st reinstall, and errors bug me, even if they don't hurt anything.

Any thoughts?
