All users who are attempting to set up and use a Dell printer are advised to first install the software from the set-up disc that is included with the product. The software supplied in that disc is very essential for the proper working of the printer and should be installed in the computer that is to be attached with the device. The software on the disc includes the printer drivers and other utilities that are required to configure the print settings and other operations supported by the Dell printer.
Connecting and setting up
The users should connect the printers with supported modes with the computer, some printers support wireless and network connections and some might support only wired methods. The users are advised to connect the printers only after the drivers and utilities are installed in the computer or when prompted by the software. After connecting the printer with the desired computer, users can configure the supported operations and functions using the interface of the installed utilities to deliver the best possible outcome.
