Adding a printer to a Windows 10 computer

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click the Settings icon (it looks like a toothed gear).
  3. Select "Printers & scanner" from the left sidebar.
  4. If the printer you want is not listed as already installed, click "+ Add a printer or scanner".
  5. A list will build of available networked printers. Scroll through the ridiculously long and unsortable listing to identify and select the correct site, location, and type of printer. Thanks, Microsoft!
  6. Click "Add device".
  7. The system will attempt to connect to and install the device. If it is successful, you will see Ready under its listing.
