You may encounter a situation on your network where you’ve connected a new printer, but it’s not showing up. Windows has a nifty way of installing it for you.
To do so, open the Start menu and then hit “Devices and Printers”. A list will then come up of all the printers on your network. Hit the “Add a printer” button up the top.
Follow the prompts, and you should be able to see the printer on your network. Then, keep following more prompts while drivers are installed.
After that process, you should be ready to print.
