Re: Wanting an accessible laser printer scanner copier
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Good news and not so good news. I was not able to find updated drivers for the HP Laser Jet 1012, but I did find the Windows 10 driver for your Xerox 7600. I used my Win-10 computer to do all the searching so the website would definitely see that I was looking for Win-10 drivers specifically. Below is the Dropbox direct download link with the website I got the driver from in the zipped folder.
Sure hope this helps you out.
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Mike and All:
The printer is an HP laser jet 1012 and the scanner is a Xerox 7600.
It would be great if there are updated drivers for them.
