Installing Xerox® Print Drivers on Windows® 7
Want to install Xerox Print Drivers on your Windows 7? Read On
Drivers are the translators between the hardware devices installed on a system and the operating system and printer being one such hardware device. If your Windows 7 system is connected to a Xerox Printer, then specific drivers for the printer will have to be installed. Printer drivers are usually provided by the manufacturer with the installation disk. However, if your Xerox Printer did not come with an installation disk, specific drivers will have to be downloaded and then installed. You must select only the latest version of drivers for the system installed with a Xerox Printer. Even though outdated drivers may work with the printer, yet they will reduce the efficiency of the printer. You must download the drivers only from the genuine website of Xerox as third party drivers may have some malware or inherent issues. The downloaded drivers can be installed and updated using the Device Manager of the system. Separate software such as Driver Genius can also be used for downloading and updating the drivers on Windows 7.
