The purpose of printer drivers is to allow applications to do printing without being aware of the technical details of each printer model. In a way it controls the operations of a printer. Whenever you print a document, the printer driver may take over, feeding data to the printer with the correct control commands. Windows Vista is an operating system released in several versions, by Microsoft, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs, and media center computers.
