    Hello Barnabylad

    Welcome to TenForums!

    I believe Windows 10 will automatically load the right driver for this printer when you connect it. Have you tried to do this yet?

    According to Epson, the Stylus Photo 900 is supported under Windows 10. The drivers are distributed through Windows Update.

    They may be available for download from the Microsoft Update Catalog. http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...efa90d7b40.cab This is a 64 bit version. It's also a cab (cabinet) file.

    Epson Driver


    Thanks for your replies.
    I can't find a driver in the official Epson site for windows 10 64 bit, only a CD and a couple of photo apps.
    Also I can only see an assortments of files on the other link I was sent, no .exe file to download a driver.
    I 'spoke' to epson help but they only directed me back to their official site.
    There must be a driver out there somewhere as the photo printer was very popular - as is windows 10.

    Let's repeat: there are no drivers officially available from Epson for download. They are "in box", meaning that they are either part of the Windows installation or downloaded from Windows Update.

    You turn on the printer's power, and connect it to the PC. The drivers should automatically install. If not, go to options/devices/printers and add the 900.

    Please let us know whether it works.

    The only real issue I find with using built-in Windows drivers for all-in-one printers will be some of the "accessory" software that originally comes with such devices isn't included although Win10 does have a FAX and Scan feature in Start, W section. What is required is a TWAIN driver for the scanner.

    Fortunately, the Stylus Photo 900 isn't an all-in-one. No scanner.

    That would be in the Toolbar or Menu bar of the program/s being used.

    This page has some documents/Manuals to download and also a downloadable file in the section called Utilities:

    As mentioned by another poster, press the Windows and "i" keys simultaneously, click "Devices", then "Printers and Scanners" in the left column. If your printer isn't already listed, click "Add a printer or scanner".
