Can I use an old scanner with Windows 10?

Yes, you can use an old scanner with Windows 10. Most major scanner manufacturers make Windows 10 compatible drivers for their models. To check if your scanner is compatible, check your manufacturer’s website for the latest driver updates or contact their customer support for further assistance.

They have features that will detect your scanner and enable compatibility in order to allow you to scan documents with your older model.

Additionally, a variety of third-party scanning apps are available on the Microsoft Store. Some of these services provide compatibility with old scanners and can enable scanning on newer versions of Windows. Examples of these apps include Windows Scan, Simple Scan, and Easy Scan.

In summary, yes, you can use an old scanner with Windows 10. Most modern scanners have Windows 10 compatible drivers from the manufacturer, and if your scanner is not supported you can use a universal scanning software or a third-party scanning app to enable scanning with Windows 10.
