Windows 10 fix for Dymo Labelwriter Software
The latest Dymo Software for LabelWriters (8.5.1) is supposed to work with Windows 10, but there seem to be a lot of issues with the software freezing during startup. But this is a "known issue", and it has a known (and simple) fix:
- Right-click on DYMO Label v8 desktop icon
- Select Properties
- Select Compatibility
- Select "Run in compatibility mode with Windows 7"
- Press Apply
- Press OK
A new version of the software is "in progress", but until then these simple steps will get rid of the freezing issue.
