I use Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and have a Brother HL-1440 installed which has been working fine. I recently had to go out of town with my laptop that has the brother printer installed, but did not take my printer with me. A friend lended me an HP laser jet 1022n to use since I forgot my printer. Apparently this printer is so old that when I plug the usb cable into my laptop windows 7 doesnt not find a driver
for the printer automatically. So, I tried downloading from the hp site and had issues installing the driver.
Lastly, I went to devices and printers > selected Add A Printer > Then add a local printer > Then I select a usb port to connect >I selected what I thought was the correct driver from the list and finished the set up, but when trying to print a test page it would not print. So, I tried adding a printer again and this time selected the correct printer driver with the usb port. So, I am able to print now but when I go devices and printers I notice that it shows the first wrong driver i installed showing as my brother printer. when I look at the properties from right clicking the printer there is a drop down that shows all the drivers
i have installed and shows the driver for my brother printer, but when I look back at devices printers it seems to show my brother printer icon named the wrong print driver i installed, basically my brother printer shows with the wrong driver i first installed.
I'm worried that my brother printer wont work now. How can I delete un needed printer drivers that are on my laptop so that only the drivers i need are installed?
