Brother Printer Cleanup Utility

The Brother printer cleanup utility helps to delete or remove the Brother printer driver, firmware, and software utilities from the computer storage. The residual printer software creates unnecessary troubles to the computer functioning.

1. When you had installed the Brother printer Full Driver & Software Package on the computer, the cleanup utility would have also be installed along with the package. Follow the steps to uninstall the Brother software;

  • Connect the Brother printer and the computer which has the Brother Utilities either through a wired or wireless network or a USB cable.
  • Maintain the printer and the computer turned on throughout the entire process. 
  • Find the All apps list on the computer and then select the Brother app.
  • Choose the Brother Utilities option from the list of options.
  • The Brother Utilities window shows up; click on the Tools menu from the left panel.
  • Right away on the right side, select the Uninstall menu.
  • Wait until the uninstallation is over and then restart the computer and verify if all the printer software have been removed.
