Hi. Does anyone know if there is a driver for the DCP-195C that doesn't have a Flash UI? I've just tried to use my scanner for the first time this year only to find the UI has gone AWOL. Thx

Not sure if it's the same problem but the scanner panel has two 'skin' styles, one of which needs Adobe Flash, which has now been withdrawn (Jan 15, 2021). I got this solution from Brother, which works (for me!). I used method 2, very quick and straightforward. Hope it helps.

The issue you are experiencing with ControlCenter3 is caused by Adobe removing support for Flash. It can be resolved by changing the skin to the classic blue in one of 2 ways:

Change the skin with a file download:

1. Download file from here: https://support.brother.com/g/b/agreement.aspx?dlid=dlf102358_000&c=us_ot&lang=en&redirect=on

2. Double click the ChangeSkinToClassic.exe file - a DOS command window (black) will open and close quickly.

3. Open ControlCentre3 – if you are unsure how to open:

a. Go to Start > Apps (or All programs) > Brother > Brother Utilities

b. In Brother Utilities, click Scan and click ControlCenter3.

c. In the System Tray near the time, right click the blue CC3 icon and left click Open.


Or manually Change the Skin:

1.. Right-click on the ControlCenter icon in the system tray near the clock, and then left-click on Close.

2. Open your local disk drive (C:). The local disk drive can typically be found in the folder My Computer or This PC.

3. Double-click on Program Files (x86) > Brother > ControlCenter3 > Skin.

4. Single right-click on the ModernStyle folder.

5. Left-click Cut.

6. Click the back button in the top left corner to return to the ControlCenter folder.

7. Right-click on an empty space in the folder and then left-click on Paste. The ModernStyle folder will appear.

8. Restart the computer.

9. Go to Start > Apps (or All programs) > Brother > Brother Utilities

10. In Brother Utilities, click Scan on the left side and then click the blue ControlCenter3 icon.

11. In the System Tray near the time, right click the blue CC3 icon and left click Open.


Important Note: Both methods will mean ControlCentre3 will open but it will use the blue Classic style skin. The other orange skin cannot be used due to Adobe removal of Flash so please use the blue classic skin.
