I'm interested in what printer you are using. I've customized some drivers for using old workhorse HP printers (circa 1998) in our workplace since we rolled out Win7 x64- I may be able to shoot them over to you.

Some printers have great driver support (like my LaserJet 6MP); others like the consumer LaserJet 1000 didn't even make it past Vista x64.

But usually it is the 64-bit kernel that prevents the printer from working... if you had a 32-bit version of Windows, I'd bet money that your printer would work fine. Of course, who uses x86 OS in this day and age...?

 

I am using a 1996 LaserJet 1200.  It's the greatest laser around because when you replace the toner kit, it replaces everything.  So its like getting a new printer everytime.  HP really

screwed themselves with this 1200.  After this all you got was a toner pack.  The laser and heater and everything else is in the unit.  So it dies a lot.

Almost through with everything.  All my programs work, even some built for Win98 (old card games and stuff).

I am getting used to the feel of the Win10 stuff and have learned to make favorites instead of taskbar pins. 

Dare,  I only use Office once in a while, and I have bought 4 versions so far. 

 

I am going to get a Dummies book for Win 10 and see if I cant get this baby under control.

No need to buy different versions. With 365 i think it's subscription package. Once a while it goes on a deal of 15$/year subscription. I buy 4 codes at that time. Set for 4 years :) Best value is in 1TB cloud.

Curious if an 8 or 8.1 driver would work for your printer on 10. Or, I use a universal printer driver for my HP printer, HP Universal Printing PCL 5 (v5.9.0), maybe that would work for you as it does for me?
