How to Uninstall or Remove Print Drivers in Windows

Tue, Oct 14, 2008


Both in Windows XP and Windows Vista,(along with Windows Server) they don’t make it easy to remove print drivers from a PC.  If you are having particularly difficult problems with a print driver, and you need to roll it back to and old driver, Windows will once and a while block the ability to install an older version.

So, you have to remove/uninstall the old driver, and you do this by simply going to your Printers and Faxes folder in the control panel of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server.  Depending on your view there may be different ways of getting there.  Once you have gotten there though, you go up to File>Server Properties, and you’ll see your list of print drivers there.  From there, you can remove or replace as you please.

I am a long time techaholic, blogger and IT administrator living in the Midwestern United States. I have been associated with computers and technology almost my entire life. The obsession started when I first set my eyes on one of the Atari Entertainment Systems and hasn't stopped since. My Dad paid $3000+ for a state of the art PC back in the day, and I have been on one almost my entire life since. It's truly an addiction that I will never give up. Along with my Tech addiction, I also enjoy scouring blogs and the web for anything that may be interesting to write about.
