Updating network printer driver


I tried updating them through the Printer Preferences page (Devices and Printers) and picking the Windows Update source from the New Driver option.

Please refer to steps below how to use Windows Update in Windows 10 to update drivers. Most often, it may take you much time to find the right driver manually. Click Scan Now button and it will auto scan your computer.

And sometimes you still don’t find the driver you need. Except these two ways, you can also use Driver Easy to update drivers automatically.
