A printer driver is application software for the printer that sends documents to be printed and manages communication between a printer and your computer. We need the manufacturer supplied Product Library CD-ROM to install the printer driver, after you have installed the printer driver software, a variety of printer settings can be configured.

Here it is important to mention that to install any application you need to login the computer as “Admin”, in Windows you must be logged in with administrator rights to install the Kyocera Driver software.
