A printer driver is a
software that is developed to help specific operating systems, like Windows 10,
communicate with the Dell printer. If you give the command to perform a
particular action, for example, print a page, your computer will convey the
command to the printer via the printer driver. The printer driver is the main
mode of communications between your Windows computer and your Dell printer, so much
so that without the driver any printer you connect to your computer will not
work smoothly. That is why it is very important to install the correct driver
on your Windows 10 operating system if you want to run Dell devices and
applications. You can contact 800 number for dell support and consult a trained Dell expert to know which driver you
need to install. You can also spend a few minutes and go through this article
to get a better idea about how to update your driver on Windows 10.

column and make a note of any file listed as ‘Application’ or perhaps ‘Drivers
for OS Deployment’.

right of the relevant file to download it and save the file on your computer.
Right-click the Dell
driver file you downloaded and select ‘Properties’.
Go to the
Compatibility tab and click ‘Change Settings for All Users.’
Press the relevant
option to run the program in compatibility mode.
Open the drop-down
menu and select the OS that corresponds to the operating system of the Dell
driver you downloaded. Click ‘Apply’ and ‘Ok’ to confirm the action.
Right-click the Dell
driver file that was saved and click ‘Run as Administrator’.
When the ‘User Account
Control’ appears, press ‘Yes’ to begin the installation process and proceed by
completing the prompts to install the Dell printer software on your Windows 10
