Hello. A new printer driver just came out for my printer. Is there a way
that I can view the printer driver version information in Windows XP. For
example I go to the properties of the printer and choose New Driver. I point
to the new driver files and it is upgraded. Unfortunately the name of the
old driver and the new driver are the same. I want to confirm that my system
is using the new driver. Is there a way to see the driver's version
infomation like Printer Driver, Version 1.6.1112.0? Thanks for the help.

Hi

Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager - find your printer, then right
click on it and select Properties>Driver.
