Printer Drivers 

A printer driver, or print processor, is a piece of software that converts data to the form specific to the printer, allowing applications to work efficiently and seamlessly with varying printer models.

No matter what type of document is being printed – be it letter, spreadsheet, PDF or photograph – it is software which is responsible for sending the data from the computer to the printing device. This software is known as a 'printer driver', or sometimes a 'print processor' – essentially it converts or translates the data from the application into a specific format that the printer understands, allowing applications to work compatibly, efficiently and seamlessly with varying printer models.

In most cases the driver sends the data from the computer via a cable, although newer printer set-ups can receive data wirelessly via a central network computer.

Whenever a user prints a document, it is the printer driver which takes over by feeding data to the printer or multi-functional device with the correct control commands; in most cases operating systems come with the correct printer drivers but they must be installed and configured before using the printer and updated drivers must also be installed, as and when appropriate.
