Changing drivers on the PaperCut Printer [ALPHA]

90% of your users will most likely only need the PaperCut global driver that comes packed and standard in our installer. However, there are some users who may need all the options such as your marketing department, real estate agents or teachers who just need more advanced options such as stapling, booklet or tray selection for your printer. If you require a power up to your printing capabilities for your users, we recommend changing the driver to the same manufacturer as your printers.

Once you have set up your PaperCut Printer with a manufacturer driver, you can now print with special features on particular manufacturer printer models.


What driver should I pick for my PaperCut Printer (Find-me) queue?

If you have one fleet of printers, we recommend using a manufacturer driver that will work across the make and models of this manufacturer. You can also use the existing PaperCut Printer that contains our PaperCut Universal global driver that works across many makes and models if your users don’t need advanced options.
