printer driver
Last modified: Thursday, August 30, 2001 

A program that controls a printer. Whenever you print a document, the printer driver takes over, feeding data to the printer with the correct control commands. Most modern operating systems come with printer drivers for the most common types of printers, but you must install them before you can use the printer. You can also download updated drivers from the printer manufacturer's Web site.
