Adding driver files to Windows

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Patrick Dunford, Nov 4, 2004.

  1. How can I put my third party printer drivers into the Windows
    folder/subfolders so that Windows will reference these driver files as
    well as the built in ones when it autodetects my printer? And that
    Windows will give me the name of my printer in the dialog box that tells
    me to select a printer by name, without having to click Have Disk and
    browse?
