Help installing a printer please

I have a xerox docuprint204a. Have downloaded the driver off the website, but where do I put the driver folder into so that the printer registers it - and how do I install the printer.

Thanks from someone hopeless with computers!

Go to add printer, then say you have disk, and point it to where you downloaded the driver to.

Depends if the driver is an MSI/ zipped or exe file

As in #2 but probably best to "extract all" (use right-click button on mouse) first. Then point to the folder within the extracted folder containing multiple files. I went to the site and checked.

Isn't the driver included with Windows! If so then boot PC, plug in printer and it should plug and play itself thru the install.

1:they have the driver
2:windows doesNOT contain a database of EVERY possiblr primter driver

The driver is not included with windows, it doesn't plug n play.
