I have just installed an updated driver from canon's web page, for my canon s630 ink jet printer (uses USB port) - all went OK. I just want to know where I can view this new version of the driver. Looked at device manager - no clue, refers to USB ports only. Got XP SP2. Thanks David
Thanks for your replies, I just wanted to see some indication somewhere that the new driver - s630xp150usZ.exe had been accepted / installed. Any ideas where these resulting files may have ended up. Thanks David
Hi, open Device Manager/ locate your printer in the list, right click on it and select Properties. Select the driver tab from the pop up window. You now have access to the driver details. Clicking on the Driver Details box will give the location of the driver.
To see the details of your print driver go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > System Properties > Device Manager. Find your printer in the list and right click and open properties where you will find details of the driver.
Presumably you did have the printer connected when you installed the new driver? But you can certainly check the driver without it being connected. If you expand (click on the plus sign) each of the USB options in Device Manager you will find one is your printer. Right click on that and follow as above.
Used Everest to check Printer Driver, it just said Version 150 installed which is the same driver version that was installed a couple of years ago, so I am still trying to identify the date of the driver in XP which I installed 2 days ago - Everest does not show. The USB options in device manager had no info about the printer or the driver. Any further ideas please? Thanks David
