Enter the printer you want to add information here:

The wizard will show .. “Connecting to Printer” ….

Select the driver that matches your printer or choose "Generic".

**If you are having trouble, make a note of your device's make and model and the IT Team may be able to download the drivers and installation tools for your printer, then assist with installation. This will require approval from the IT Manager and may require some additional steps**

The steps to install a wireless printer may vary by manufacturer. In general, however, modern printers today will detect your network and automate the installation.

Step 2: Select your Wi-Fi network. You'll need to know your home network's SSID, which you can find by hovering your mouse over the Wi-Fi icon in the taskbar.

Step 3: Enter your network password.

In some cases, you might need to temporarily connect your printer to your computer via USB to install the software. But otherwise, that's it. You should find your printer automatically added in the Printers & scanners section under Settings > Devices.
