Print Drivers, Print Drivers! Get ’em While They’re Hot!

It’s that time of year again – finals week! That’s right Angels, the school year is coming to a close. We know you must be as excited as we are – the end is in sight, and summer vacation is so close you can smell it. But wait, you still have a paper due before you can be free. Well that’s fine, you’ll get it done in time, but how will you print it?

If you want to use the Meredith printers around campus and in the dorms, you need to download the proper print drivers! Drivers are little pieces of software that act like a translator to help your computer and the printer talk to each other. If the drivers on your computer are out of date, it can’t communicate with the printer.

No worries! Follow these simple steps to download the latest print drivers:

Step 1:  Log into your MyMeredith account. my.meredith.edu

   Step 6: Select “Yes” when prompted, then “Install” to begin installing.

Step 7: When the installation is complete, select “Finish”.

Congratulations! You now have the most up-to-date print drivers for the Meredith printers! This is the best way to always get the latest updates, so check back if you suspect yours are no longer correct.
