Driver soft­ware for a wide range of print­ers and scan­ners is in­stalled au­to­mat­i­cally on de­mand — see Check the hard­ware man­u­fac­turer’s web­site for new up­dates. Print­ers that sup­port AirPrint might not need ad­di­tional soft­ware. Ac­ces­sories that re­quire cus­tom soft­ware ex­ten­sions to be in­stalled, such as Wa­com tablets, Log­itech mice, and some oth­ers, may have prob­lems in High Sierra un­til these are up­dated.

If a Blue­tooth de­vice won’t work, go to Sys­tem Pref­er­ences’ Blue­tooth pane, put the pointer over its name, and click the X re­vealed to the right to disconnect the de­vice. Now set the de­vice to pair­ing mode (check its man­ual for how to do this); when it ap­pears in the Blue­tooth de­vices list on your Mac, click Pair next to it.

Printer/scan­ner driv­ers in­stalled by macOS are up­dated for you, but you’ll need to check man­u­fac­tur­ers’ sites for other types of gear.
