Hi, my name is Chris!

No, you do not need Microsoft Word to install a printer on your computer. Word and a printer have no relation to each other, beyond the fact that Word is one of many applications that you can print from. You can certainly install a printer without Word.

If you have any other questions on this, just let me know.
