Set Up A Windows Printer

With Windows-based computers, there are two ways to set up a printer. Usually, the easiest way to install a printer is to plug the printer into the USB port on the computer and it will install the printer drivers automatically. But on rare occasions, simply plugging in your printer won’t properly install all of your drivers. For example, if you have bought an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier, the computer may only install one or two of the printer drivers.

The better way to install a printer is to do a manual install. To manually install a printer and the proper printer drivers you have to put the CD into your computer that came with your printer and then follow the step-by-step instructions.

Set Up A Printer To An Apple Computer

To set up a printer on an Apple Computer, you can follow the same basic instructions. Usually, iMacs and MacBooks come preinstalled with printer drivers. If the printer doesn’t work, update your drivers and move on from there.
