Microsoft ending support for third-party printer drivers is good news for you

Microsoft has revealed in a new document that it will no longer control third-party printer drivers on devices running Windows OS, including Windows 11.

According to the articleMicrosoft will allow IPP Class Driver and Mopria-compatible printing devices, the latter of which are native to Windows 10 version 21H2. These are supported instead of manufacturer-created drivers through Windows Update. This means that printer manufacturers do not have to provide special drivers, which is already a big advantage for them.
