How do I add a new network printer to my office computer?

Please note: The following procedure is for PC computers. If you're on a Mac, please check out the file to the right of this screen

The process for a PC is fairly simple:

  1. Click your start button
  2. In the “Search Windows" box, type \\print and hit Enter
  3. In the window that appears, select the printer you need (they’re listed alphabetically by printer name) and double-click
    1. All network printers names start with p________, but go alphabetical from the second letter
  4. After the printer is installed on your computer, a pop-up of the printer queue will appear; this means the install was successful and you may close out of it

To verify that the printer has been installed, Click start and go to “Devices and Printers”. You should see the printer listed here. You can, if you want, right-click on the printer at this point and select “Set as default printer”.
