Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to add a printer to my Mac Pro. The instructions say to access settings, then preferences, then printers and scanners. I am unable to do so. I've accessed System Preferences but there is not Settings to click on. Help very much needed as I need to print a document.

Technician's Assistant: How are you connecting to your printer: wirelessly or by USB?

Wirelessly

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the printer driver software?

This is a new computer so I guess the answer is I haven't.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Don't think so
