Adding a Network Printer (Windows 10)

Issue/Question

How do I add a network printer to my computer?

Environment

  • Windows 10

Resolution

  1. Click Start .
  2. Type Control Panel.
  3. Click Control Panel.
  4. Click Devices and Printers.
  5. Click Add a printer.
  6. Click The printer that I want isn't listed.
  7. Select Find a printer in the directory, based on location or feature.
  8. Click Next.
  9. You will be given a list of all Active Directory printers on campus. You can use the available tools to search for the printer, or select one from the generated list.
    Note: The Location field is helpful when locating printers. Typing in the abbreviation of a building (for example, DSU for Downing Student Union, MMTH for Mass Media and Technology Hall, and so on) and clicking Find Now will display printers exclusive to that building.
  10. Double-click a printer to install it.
    Note: 
    For security purposes, you must be a member of the proper Active Directory group(s) to install a printer. If you do not have permission to install a printer, you will be prompted for a username and password.
