    Printer Driver - No Custom Paper Size Option

    Hi fellow members,

    I'm facing a problem about my printer under Windows 8.1. I cannot create custom paper size.

    My previous printer is a HP P2035 printer. According to HP, the driver is built into Windows 8.1 and thus does not offer any driver for w8.1. The printer is detected correctly and I'm able to print, except I cannot create a custom paper size.

    I raised this issue on the HP forum and a couple of members explained that the printer is pretty old and thus there is no incentive for Microsoft nor HP to develop a driver for Windows 8.1

    Then I change to Fuji Xerox DocuPrint p355db. Again this printer is able to print just fine by Windows 8.1 built in driver, except the driver just won't allow me to create a custom paper size!

    Help please.

Printer and driver issues
Hello I did a clean install of windows 8 pro 64 on a new ssd and have it running well (previously running vista 32). Do I need to install my old drivers? I tried to use the old gigabyte disk but it stuffed up the computer and couldn't recognise cd drive after reboot. Are they all necessary?
