If your printer is on and connected to the network, Windows should find it easily. Available printers can include all printers on a network, such as Bluetooth and wireless printers or printers that are plugged into another computer and shared on the network. You might need permission to install some printers.

  1. Select the Start  button then type Printers & scanners.
    Open Printers & scanners settings

  2. Select Add a printer or scanner. Wait for it to find nearby printers, then choose the one you want to use, and select Add device.

If your printer isn't in the list, select The printer that I want isn't listed, and then follow the instructions to add it manually using one of the options.
