Hi Oliva,

The built-in drivers are already included with Windows or are available through Windows update.
The built-in drivers support the basic functions of your Brother machine.
Scanning, PC-FAX and Control Center may not be available depending on your Brother machine, method of connection and Windows version.

To install the driver, connect the Brother machine to your PC with a USB cable. The built-in drivers will be installed automatically.
If the driver does not install automatically, check the following solutions that may be applicable for your case.
  • Connect the Brother machine and your computer directly.
    Do not use a USB hub to connect between the machine and your computer (as this can cause non recognition issues).
  • Reconnect the USB cable between the Brother machine and your computer.
  • Turn the Brother machine power off and on (unplug machine from mains supply and plug back in).
Device Setup
If you are connecting your Brother machine via Network connection:
The built-in drivers you can install via network connection ONLY support printing function.
The availability of Windows 10 S built-in drivers is different depending on the model number of your machine.
