Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
Are these workgroup printers attached to individual PCs via USB cable or
are they standalone and connect with your router either with a network cable or wirelessly?
No. One moment.
OK. On the computer hosting the printers click the start button and open Settings.
On the Settings page click Devices. At the bottom of that page open Devices and Printers.
Right-click on one of the printers and select Printer Properties
click the Sharing tab at the top of the window and put a checkmark in
the Share this Printer box. A Share Name will be created by default but you can change
that to whatever you want.
Click Apply the OK. Restart the computer and the printers
should now be visible to other computers in the network when Windows searches
for printer in the Devices and Printers window when you click Add a Printer.
I'm going to be on another call for about 25 minutes.
Were you able to get the printers shared and detected by your other machines?
