FAQ: How do I uninstall the printer driver (for Windows)?

Helpful Information:


This section describes the procedure for uninstalling the printer driver from your computer under Windows XP/Windows 2000/Windows ME/Windows 98 SE.
(To uninstall is to delete software when it is no longer needed, or if a problem occurs.)
Note that if you uninstall the printer driver, you will not be able to use the printer to print images. Please be careful when doing this.

The example steps shown below show the process for Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000/Windows ME/Windows 98 SE, the on-screen display may differ.
