IT Self-Help: Installing a Network Printer on a PC





  1. First, you will need to locate the PRN number (PRN-XXXXXX) of the printer, which can be found on the "Printer Information" card located on the side of the printer.
  2. Go to your computer and click on the START button.
  3. Type the print server name: \\PRINTSRV1 in the Search Programs and Files box.
  4. A window will open showing a list of printers. Find the desired printer by matching the department name, the printer model, and the PRN number (see step 1).
    Tip: the printer network name will also include the room number where the printer is located.
  5. Once you have found the exact match, double-click on its icon (or right-click and select "Connect...").
  6. After a few moments another window will open for the printer queue. You will then know that the printer has been installed on your computer and is ready to be used.
  7. To find out how to make that printer (or any other installed printer) as your default, click here.
