How do I print to a network printer?

Before you begin, make sure you know the name of the printer that you want to add. Sometimes the name is displayed on the printer itself. If the name is not on the printer, contact the local staff personnel who print to it regularly.

  • Open Printers by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clickingPrinters.
  • Click Add a printer.
  • In the Add Printer Wizard, select Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.
  • In the list of available printers, select the one you want to use, and then click Next. If your computer is connected to a network, only printers listed in Active Directory for your domain are displayed in the list.
  • If prompted, install the printer driver on your computer. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  • Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish.
