Windows 11 Compatible Printers

Windows 11 Compatible Printers Banner

Windows 11 will become available on October 5, 2021. As with every operating system release or update, printer compatibility is always a worry. Although Windows 11 will come with new features and look different from Windows 10, there shouldn’t be any change with regard to print drivers at all.

We do not expect anything to change regarding print drivers and compatibility for Windows 11 release. Printerbase works very closely with all the major printer manufacturers.

Will My Printer Work With Windows 11 ?

Yes, your printer should work with no issues at all. According to Microsoft, Windows 11 is based on the solid foundations of Windows 10 software, so your current printer(s) should all work as normal.

Any compatibility issues will depend on your PC hardware rather than printer. If your current PC supports Windows 10 and meets the requirements for Windows 11, you have nothing to worry about.

Update 12/10/2021

Brother are reporting that some printers connected via USB may not work with Windows 11, read the full story at Bleeping Computer.

We would not recommend upgrading to Windows 11 if you have a Brother printer connected via USB.

Windows 11 Compatible Printer Driver News Updates

Currently, printer manufacturers have released any Windows 11 specific printer drivers or indicated there will be any significant changes. As always, we will keep this page updated so stay tuned…….

Hi David

Unfortunately, Canon have not yet released any Drivers for this printer.
If they do, they’ll be available here:

My printer HP officejet pro 8600 plus is not on the HP list of printers compatible with Windows 11. It works fine with Windows 10 now. Should I download the upgrade to 11 anyway? Will my printer work? Thanks.

HI Sherry.

We would knot recommend upgrading at the moment, as there are no Printer drivers – there would be no printer support for your OfficeJet Pro 8600.

Hope this helps

So what is the best option for printer purchase for a new computer with Windows 11?

Hi Lisa!

Currently, if possible we advise holding off on a Windows 11 upgrade until stability and Printer drivers are readily available. However, if you already have a Windows 11 Computer, our sales team are available to advise on a suitable printer.

Hope this helps
Thank you

Hi Alan

Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately there are still teething issues getting some printers to print from Windows 11. For a work around, we recommend contacting Epson directly.

Hope this helps
