Dell has not tested this printer with Windows 8, but there is a work around that we can try. The steps are as follows:
To install the driver, make sure you have unplugged the printer from the computer.
Download the driver for this printer by clicking here (the driver is of windows 7 but it works with windows 8) . Once the driver is downloaded run it and it will ask you to extract the files. So click on continue, then Yes then OK, whatever comes up on the screen and then after sometime it will say "You have successfully extracted the files". If the setup runs automatically then close it or exit out of it.
Next, open My Computer ---> double click on C drive ---> double click on Dell folder ---> double click on driver folder ----> double click on R150575 folder ---> then you will see a file named 'setup' it should be an executable file (with extension.exe) . Right click on that setup file and click properties; a new small window will open up. Now go to 'Compatibility tab' and click on it ---> Put a check mark on 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select windows 7 from the drop down menu below ---> then also put a check mark on 'Run this program as administrator' below on that same window. Now click Apply and then OK.
Then double click on the setup file and run the installation and follow instructions. During installation it might ask you to plug the printer, so make sure you have powered on the printer before connecting the usb cable to the computer.
I'm pretty much sure it should work. Try and print something. Hope this helps. Reach out to me here if you have any other queries.
Once you have gone to R150575 folder and opened it, you should see all these files as below:
Hope this helps
Thank you so much. I have windows 8 on my new Inspiron 660 and your instructions worked perfectly. My Dell printer 926 is working great!
