Printer Drivers for Windows® XP®
Do you want to downgrade to Windows XP but are not sure about whether your current printer would work with Windows XP?
Printer manufacturers always make their printers compatible with the last two versions of Windows to ensure that most of those who buy their products would be able to install and use their products. Those who are using older versions of Windows, like Windows XP, may be at a bit of disadvantage. That is why it’s important that you check the compatibility of your printer before deciding to downgrade to Windows XP.
Here are ways you can make sure that your printer works with Windows XP:
- Check the manufacturer’s site
- Download the correct drivers
- Seek professional support
Check the manufacturer’s site
Firstly, you can easily see whether the printer that you have would work with Windows XP by going to the website of the printer manufacturer and check the description of the printer to see the operating systems that it works with. Most printers that are being sold today are still compatible with Windows XP so chances are your printer is among them.
Download the correct drivers
After finding out that your printer is compatible with Windows XP, you need to download the latest driver and install it after you finish downgrading to Windows XP. Even if you still have the driver disc that came with your printer, it is still a good idea to download the latest version of the driver.
