Download the driver, uninstall the printer from your computer and then install it with this driver for windows 10 and tell me if that then provides the PCL6 driver.
Let me know the results please

Unfortunately the the printer re-installs as 2800 PCL5.

ok, they have not released the PCL6 for windows 10 yet sorry, as I have now ensured you have the latest version installed.
I checked for any communications on when a later version is available but none has been communicated yet.
For now you will need to use this version.and check back on the link I gave monthly for a later version to be released.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
