How Can You Install Konica Minolta Printer Driver on Windows 11?

Getting your Konica Minolta printer up and running on Windows 11 involves downloading the correct driver and installing it on your system. This guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.

Downloading the Printer Driver

Here’s how you can download the printer driver:

Konica Minolta Support Page

Head to the Konica Minolta support website.

Find Your Driver

Locate the search bar and enter your specific printer model number. Choose the correct model from the search results.

Download Driver

Click on the “Drivers” tab and then select “Drivers-Universal Printer.” Within this section, find the driver compatible with Windows 11 (usually 64-bit). Download the latest version available.

Extract the File

Once the download is complete, locate the downloaded file in your Downloads folder. It will likely be a zipped file. Right-click on the file and choose “Extract All.” This creates a new folder containing the driver installation files.

Installing the Driver

Here’s how you can install the driver:

Open Control Panel

Press the Windows key and search for “Control Panel.” Open the Control Panel application.

Add a Printer

Go to “Hardware and Sound” and select “View devices and printers.” In this case, select “Add a printer.”

Manual Configuration

Select “The printer that I want isn’t listed” in the “Add Printer” window. Driver installation can be done manually with this option.

Configuring an IP Address

Choose the option “Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname, and next press “Next”.

Type of Device

Select “TCP/IP Device” under “Device type” in the ensuing dialog. Input your Konica Minolta printer’s IP address in the “Hostname or IP address” section. By opening the printer’s menu and going to the network settings area, you may determine the IP address of the printer.

Driver Choice

In the “Port name” column, leave it blank and choose the option to “Query the printer and automatically select the driver.” Press “Next.”

Look up Driver

Press “Have Disk.” You can use this option to find the downloaded driver files by hand.

Driver Location

In the “Browse for folders” window, navigate to the folder you extracted from the downloaded driver file earlier. Click “Open” to select the folder.

Choose Driver

Within the extracted folder, you’ll likely see a file named “Setup.exe” (or “Setup” for 32-bit systems). Select this file and click “Next.”

Install Driver

Windows will now locate and use the chosen driver. Click “Install” to begin the installation process.

Printer Name

Following installation, you’ll be asked to give your printer a name. Give your Konica Minolta printer a name that is easy to remember and pronounce.

Test Page

Click “Print a test page” to verify successful installation. The test page should print successfully from your Konica Minolta printer.

Options for Installing the Driver

There are two main ways to install a Konica Minolta printer driver on Windows 11:

Manual Installation (as detailed above)

This method offers more control over the driver selection process and is useful when automatic driver installation fails.

Automatic Installation

Windows 11 may attempt to automatically install a driver for your Konica Minolta printer when you connect it to your computer. However, this method doesn’t always guarantee the latest or most compatible driver.


You should be able to download and install the appropriate Konica Minolta printer driver on your Windows 11 computer by following these steps. If you encounter any issues during the process, refer to the Konica Minolta support website or their documentation for further troubleshooting assistance.
