Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility With Dell Printers


The following three tables provide information if your printer is confirmed to work with Windows 7.
If your printer is in the last table, some or all of the printer functionality may still work within Windows 7.
When you printer is not listed please check the Dell Drivers and Downloads Site page to find out what drivers are available.
If there is not a Windows 7 printer driver for your printer, you should use the Vista equivalent driver if available. While some Windows Vista printers may work in Windows 7, we however don’t guarantee their functionality.
