How Can I Uninstall Printer Drivers & Printer Software Files?

If you want to replace your old printer with a new printer; or are replacing your OS; you will have to uninstall printer drivers. You, more often than not, will also need to uninstall the printer software files.

STEP 1: Program Menu

Most printer drivers can be uninstalled using the uninstall utility. This utility is usually to be found in the Windows program. Just follow the instructions of the utility and uninstall the driver.

STEP 2: Product CD Uninstaller

Every printer will come with a product CD. This CD will have various products including the driver and software. The CD will also have its own uninstaller, which can be used to uninstall the driver, as well as, the printer specific software.

STEP 3: Control Panel Windows Uninstaller

This uninstaller is very easy to use. All you need to do is go to Add/Remove program and click on the product (printer name). At times, the printer might not be named according to its correct name or brand. However, it will be there, albeit named differently.

STEP 4: For Uninstalling Software

The Product CD can be used for this purpose. Moreover, you could also take the route – control panel-add/remove programs and choose the printer software that has been installed and remove them on an individual basis.

Many a times, you will be given a choice while uninstalling drivers ‘Complete Uninstall’. This might also uninstall most of the software that you have installed onto your computer.
