How to Install and Configure a Zebra printer

Updated over a week ago

Download and Install the Printer Driver

1) If you haven’t already installed a Zebra printer driver, download the Seagull Scientific driver.

2) Before you install, make sure your printer is not connected to your computer.

3) Launch the .exe file from your downloads folder and follow the onscreen instructions.

4) Connect the printer to the computer once you've installed the driver. Your computer will now automatically match this printer to the downloaded driver.
