2 methods to update Brother MFC-L2700DW drivers

Both methods below work in Windows 10, 8.1 and 7. And as the method list suggests, you don’t have to try both. Just decide if you want to do it manually or automatically and take your pick:

  1. Update Brother MFC-L2700DW printer driver manually
  2. Update Brother MFC-L2700DW printer driver automatically (Recommended)

Method 1: Update Brother MFC-L2700DW printer driver manually

According to Brother’s official website, it’s preferable to uninstall the older driver first before we head to the official website to download & install our driver. It needs time, patience, and certain levels of computer skills. If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, or worrying about any risks in the process, jump to Method 2.

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key     and R at the same time. Then copy & paste devmgmt.msc into the box and click OK.

2) Double-click on Printer queues.

3) Right-click on Brother MFC-L2700DW and click Uninstall device.

4) Go to Brother’s official website for MFC-L2700DW’s driver download.

5) Make sure the detected OS for your computer is right (Windows 10, 64-bit, in my example) and click Search

6) In the first result, click Click to choose, select your preferred language and then click Close.

7) Click Agree to the EULA to Download.

8) Double-click on the downloaded file and follow the onscreen instructions to finish the install.

9) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Method 2: Update Brother MFC-L2700DW printer driver automatically(Recommended)

If you’re not confident playing around with drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

1)  Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.  

3) Click the Update button next to a flagged Brother MFC-L2700DW driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version). 

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of All the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). 

4) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
