I have an older printer and Windows 10 does not recognize it. I love my printer and don't want to buy a new one just to work with Windows 10. It is an Epson Stylus Photo R200. If I can't get it to work I will uninstall Windows 10. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Printer Driver
07/14/15More Info

Description:
Windows 10 drivers for this product are installed automatically when you power-on and connect your printer to your Windows 10 computer.
Compatible Systems: Windows 10 32-bit, Windows 10 64-bit
SOURCE: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?infoType=Downloads&oid=29081

If it was present during the upgrade you may have to completely remove it (from device manager) as well as any associated software / driver packages. Unplug it from your system.
Reboot and plug it back in.
Hopefully Windows Update will take care of the rest.
IF NOT....
You can use Internet Explorer and go here http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=Epson Stylus Photo R200
Make sure you get the correct driver for your architecture (32 or 64 bit)

Thanks Trouble for responding. I'll give that a try.... although it may be tomorrow before I can try it. I'll let you know if that worked. Thanks again!

Great. Had the same problem, followed your advice, thanks Trouble. Worth mentioning, once downloaded the driver, had to update in Control Panel - Device Manager - Printers (Epson Stylus Photo R200 (M) had re-appeared), right click and click 'update driver software'. Brilliant
