Adding Printer to Student Worker Computer

Issue/Question

I am a student worker using a WKU-owned computer. I cannot add a printer and am prompted for administrator credentials when I try to install software.

Environment

  • WKU-owned Computer
    • Windows

Cause

The machine has a Student Rollout assigned to it.

Resolution

If you need a printer added to a Student Worker computer please contact the ITS Service Desk.

Student Rollout limits what can be done on a computer.

  • Using applications already installed on the computer, such as internet browsers and Word, Excel, etc., is permitted.
  • Installing other applications, such as Adobe Acrobat Pro or Photoshop, require a faculty or staff supervisor's credentials.
  • Printers must first be added by IT, but can then be used by anyone that logs into the computer.

To easily identify if a student rollout is active, an icon will appear on the desktop labeled as Student Rollout
