Updating or removing printer drivers
If you ask me, printers should appear in the Device Manager along with all the other hardware. Instead, the options are hidden in the Printers Control Panel applet.

Windows will download the latest drivers from the print server. If you downloaded the latest drivers to your computer, then you can use the Update option to find the files on your hard drive.
