How to share my printer to all the client computers.
Hi Mr. Peter,
It is so easy sharing a printer with its client computer.As you have confirmed your main computer is connected with a printer and you want to share it with your client computers.Please follow the below steps how to share your printers.
1.Go to the start-control panel-devices and printer option and click on it.
2.You will see the printer icon.
3.Right click the appropriate printer's icon which is attached to your server computer and select 'Properties'and click on it.
4.Then click the 'sharing tab'.The sharing tab will appear.
5.Click on the 'Change sharing options' button.You will be shown User Account Control prompt.
6.Click 'Continue' button.
7.Now you will see a wizard written with your printer name and properties at end.Look into the middle of the wizard. You will find a square box written along with 'Share this printer'.Please select that box.
8.Then please enter the appropriate name of the printer in the 'Share name' text box, or leave it as default printer name.
9.Then select the 'Render print jobs on client computers check box.(Note:Click the additional drivers button,if you have shared your printer with users running different versions of windows.The different versions of windows require different printer drivers.)
Now you shared your printer with your client computers.
