How to Delete an Epson Driver

by William Hirsch

Epson hardware devices, such as printers, scanners, and fax machines, all require drivers to communicate with the other components of your Windows PC. A driver consists of a set of files that are usually installed when a device is added to a computer. It is always a good idea to uninstall or remove old Epson drivers when you replace a printer or scanner. Old drivers on a computer can cause conflicts and subsequent errors to occur with the new hardware.

Click the "Start" button, then "Devices and Printers." A new window will appear showing all the printing and scanning devices currently installed on the PC.

Right-click on the Epson device for which you wish to remove drivers and select "Printer Properties" from the menu. A Printer Properties window will come into view.

Click on the "Advanced" tab within the printer properties window, then "Uninstall Driver." Windows will removed the Epson driver form the computer. Close the printer properties window.
