tech-tricksIf you have a printer connected to your network, but your computer isn’t recognising it, then there’s an easy way to get it installed.


Of course, this will help actually find and install the printer, but not seeing it come up could be due to a variety of problems. Do this first to see if you’re having any trouble.


In Windows, go to the Start menu, then “Devices and Printers”. Then, click on “add a printer” at the top of the screen. You’ll want to select the second option, “add a network printer”.


Then, just follow the prompts. If successful, you’ll be told the printer has been successfully installed.
