ZebraDesigner Driver



The ZebraDesigner driver can be removed simply by accessing the list of printer drivers installed on your PC. In Windows XP for example, you can select Start/Settings/Printers and Faxes to access the list of printer drivers. You can then right click the driver and select Delete. The driver and associated files will be removed.

In Windows 7 click the Start button in the bottom left corner and select Device and Printers to access the list of printer drivers.  You can then highlight the driver and click the Remove device option.  The driver and associated files will be removed.  

The Printer Installation Wizard with Version and later can be used to remove all drivers from the computer including drivers staged in the driver store.  Wherever the driver files were inflated, the PrnInst.exe file can be executed to start the Printer Installation Wizard.  This would be the preferred method to remove installed drivers.

1. Navigate to the ZebraDesigner Folder where the Driver was unzipped.
