Try going into printers and devices and select a a printer or a device then let it find your printer and the driver should install. If that doesn't work go to the printer manufacturer and download the driver on your specific printer. Now any computer I have pops up a message that a new device is detected and then it try's to install the driver for that device.

For USB printer, you need to begin installing the driver before you connect the connect the printer, then connect it when you see the message on the screen telling you to connect it & switch it on.

For mobile phone, you need to install Windows software available from the phone manufacturer's website.
