Printer drivers

A printer driver is a software component that provides access to printer features and provides the means for the computer to communicate with the printer. For help using your printer driver, see Gaining access to printer driver settings.

Select a printer driver based on the way you use the printer.

Use the PCL 6 printer driver to take full advantage of the printer features. Unless complete backward compatibility with previous PCL drivers or older printers is necessary, the PCL 6 driver is recommended.
Use the PostScript (PS) printer driver for compatibility with PS needs. Certain printer features are not available in this printer driver. The printer automatically switches between PS 3 emulation and PCL printer languages depending on the driver you have selected.
