I want to know if my printer, scanner and programmes are compatible with Win 10 (planning an upgrade from Win 7), and cannot find a way to do this. Would someone help please? Thank you

You do not detail what hardware and software you have.

 

For hardware, go to the manufacturers web sites and see if they offer a Windows 10 driver; if nothing shown, look in their user forums and see if others have had such problems.   Scanners were a favorite for not being compatible.

 

Programs, many mainstream ones will work ok or can be used in the compatibility mode, but as I found some less well known programs may not work properly, again check with their makers websites.

 

Whatever you do, before you upgrade, make a couple of system image backups using one of the free tools like Macrium Reflect so if you have problems with W10 you can readlily restore back to your working W7 system.

They seems to be supported for W10, hopefully W10 will automatically install the drivers for you.
