It’s essential to keep the driver for your Samsung printer up-to-date so that your printer can run in tip-top shape and prevent printer not printing, system crashing issues. In this post, we’re showing you 2 easy ways to update your Samsung printer driver.

2 options to update Samsung printer drivers:

Here’re 2 options for you to update your Samsung printer driver in Windows 10, 8.1 and 7:

  1. Update my Samsung printer driver manually
  2. Update my Samsung printer driver automatically(Recommended)

Option 1: Update my Samsung printer driver manually

Here, Samsung CLX-8380 Series is used as the example printer. You might want to check your printer model to follow the steps. And since HP has acquired Samsung Printer Business, you’ll have to go to HP’s official website to download the driver for your Samsung printer.

To manually download and update your Samsung printer driver, you’ll first need to go to HP’s official website, find out the latest & correct version, download the file and install it all on our own. 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 Option 2.

  1. Go to HP’s official website for driver downloads, and click Printer.
  2. Type your printer model into the box and click Submit.
  3.  Make sure the selected operating system is the right version for your Windows OS (Windows 10, 64-bit in my example). Then click Driver – Product Installation Software > Basic DriversDownload (the first result for the latest driver version).
  4.  Double-click on the downloaded file and follow the onscreen instructions to finish the install.
  5. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Option 2: Update my Samsung 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 Samsung printer 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). 

There you have it – manually and automatically update your Samsung printer printer driver. Hope this helps and feel free to comment below if you have any other further questions.
