We recommend using the PCL 6 driver.
Download the executable file and before you run the executable, create a temporary folder; the executable file will extract and place the print files in a folder that you specify. Once the executable is downloaded to your computer, run the program to extract the installation files to the folder you created. When complete, the folder you created will contain a new folder, inside that folder will be another folder named disk1 and inside that folder are the print driver files.
Add the Ricoh Aficio Driver
For Windows 10, to add the printer to your computer, begin by following the instructions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/17155/add-a-printer. Scroll down the list of printers discovered on the network until you find the link The printer that I want isn't listed, click that link.
