Printer is detected but you don’t have the Driver for the older printer


When Windows 10 scans for connected devices, it will give you a few options if it does not find any Drivers. Here are the steps you need to follow

  1. Click the “The printer that I want isn’t listed” option. (Since we are adding a local printer, we will not discuss Network printer’s options that Windows gives you.)
  2. Select the option that says “My printer is a little older. Help me find it.”
  3. Click Next
  4. Windows 10 will now again search for the connected printer and hopefully install the printer using compatible Drivers in its database.
