I upgraded a Windows 8.1 machine to Windows 10.  The printer drivers for Windows 8.1 when upgraded to Windows 10 worked. I have a new HP laptop that came with Windows 10 installed.  After going to Kodak's site I found that Kodak is not making Windows 10 drivers for this model.  Does it make any sense to download the 8.1 drivers to see if the printer will work.


I've seen where this suggestion has worked in the past for other devices.  Any ideas.


Thanks for your coments.

I believe Kodak exited the inkjet printer business. I doubt they will be upgrading their drivers. Your only option it to install the 8.1 driver and hope it works.

Run the installer in compatibility mode for Windows 8 - they usually work.
