Map a Printer in Windows 7

Here are instructions for mapping the printer on a windows computer. If you need the name of the printer you can ask the Helpdesk or it is listed on a sticker on the side of the printer.

1) Go to the Windows menu in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen

2) Click on “Devices and Printers” on the right-hand side of the menu that comes up

3) At the top of the window that appears, you should see “Add printer” – click on that

4) Choose “Add a wireless, Bluetooth or network printer”

5) Click “The printer I want wasn’t listed”

In the box in the middle of the screen, input the name of the printer (it is on the sticker on the side of the printer under ‘Asset Name’)

6) Click “Next” – it will download a driver

7) If you want this to be the default printer, select the checkbox there

8) Click “Finish”
