Windows 10 should find the right driver automatically, but teething problems are quite common after upgrading a PC to Windows 10, and you may find you need to update with new printer drivers to ensure that your printer works with the new OS.

To help, we’ve also created a list of all the the Windows 10 compatible printers we’ve tested.

If you’re having issues with a particular piece of hardware (the video adapter or network adapter for instance), you can check the support section of the manufacturer’s website to make sure you have the latest driver for that device installed.

Bottom line: You should never have to pay to update your computer’s hardware drivers.

If you’ve already upgraded to Windows 10 and discovered your printer doesn’t work, you have three options.

Firstly, try updating your printer drivers to make sure they are compatible with Windows 10.

A driver, short for “device driver”, is software installed into Windows (or any operating system) that handles the operating details for using a particular hardware device.

For example, Windows includes a fairly generic mouse driver, but downloading updated drivers from the mouse manufacturer may enable additional buttons and capabilities that the default drivers ignore.If you are not an administrator, you will have to get the login information to continue with the can skip this part by selecting “I’ve Already Registered” or “Later.” If you choose “Later”, and you haven’t already registered a machine, don’t forget to come back and do so, otherwise your warranty will not be valid.How a driver is saved and packaged determines how it is installed.Regardless of how these messages show up, they are all scams.

The scam notices typically say that your computer’s hardware drivers are out of date, which could lead to serious problems unless they are updated.

You will need administrator permission to install the software.
