No matter you want to update Brother MFC-L2690DW driver or other brother printer drivers, here is a post for you. Following this tutorial, you can easily get your printer drivers updated automatically or manually.

Why should you update Brother printer driver?

  • If you’ve upgraded your operating system (eg. from Windows 8 to Windows 10), the old driver may not work properly.
  • Problematic drivers may result in a malfunctioning device. The most common reason why a printer fails to print is that the driver is corrupt, damaged, or missing.
  • Older printer drivers may have bugs that can be cured by updating the driver.

In fact, the above reasons work for other devices. That’s because drivers are a bridge between the computer system and your hardware (mouse, headset, keyboard, audio card, graphics card, etc). If any of your devices go wrong, take updating drivers as your go-to option.
