How to connect two windows pc that shares a common internet network?

Hello,

I am MD. Aminul Islam. And this is my first question here. I think this would be silly question to some of you. But I think many others will be happy to get the solution. 

Coming to the point. Some days ago I tried to connect My PC and my laptop both are connected in the same internet network. I use WiFi in laptop and LAN in the PC. But what can I do is only share files through the connection. But I know that the printer which is connected to the PC can also be shared. I still can not use the printer from my laptop. So if you guys have any solution please help me in this matter.

Point to be mentioned " I have searched Google but could only solve the file sharing problem. But the printer sharing problem is still unsolved. "

Greetings!

 

You are right Printer can also be shared. I will show you how to this. On your PC (where the printer is attached), go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers. Select the printer you want to share and then right click and select properties. Please refer to the pictures below.

Select the Sharing Tab and then check the "Share this Printer" and click OK.

You are now done with the PC.

On your laptop, go to My Computer > Network  and then select the printer you have shared.

Double click the printer so that the Printer's Driver will be installed. Once the Driver is installed you can now print on your printer. I hope this helps you.
