Windows 8 and Xerox Printers


Have you upgraded to Windows 8?  If so you may have some questions about how to setup or install the print drivers for your Xerox equipment on this new OS.  Xerox has created a document to help navigate you through the installation of the printer drivers and the installation of the printer apps. The document titled Xerox® Print Drivers & Apps Best Practices for Windows® 8 Customer Tip is available on the DC Tips page and includes instructions that will work with most of our products. 

Beyond this document there are also instructions for installing these printer drivers in both the release notes for the driver and in the support pages for your machine.  The support pages will provide you with detailed instructions for installing and configuring the Windows 8 printer drivers on your specific device. 

Another exceptional resource about the new types of drivers with the Windows 8 operating system is the compatibility matrix.  The matrix will show you which Xerox printers or multifunction devices are compatible with Windows 8.  This document also has an extensive explanation of the different types of drivers and instructions for installing and using these drivers complete with screenshots to help walk you through the instructions.   I find this document very helpful.

The document includes instructions for the Apps used in conjunction with printing as well.  If you have upgraded I hope that you find this information useful.  If you will be upgrading soon bookmark this page so that you can find these resources when you need them. 

Happy Printing!!
