To access a printer connected to another PC on the network from your Windows Vista–based machine, you’ll need to add it manually. You can achieve this through Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, and Printers.

To add a shared printer connected to another PC on your network, follow these steps:

1.
On the PC running Windows Vista, click Start, click Control Panel, and under Hardware and Sound, click Printer.

2.
In the toolbar, click Add Printer.

3.
From the Add Printer dialog box, click Add A Network, Wireless Or Bluetooth printer. See Figure 1. Click Next.

4.
Browse through the list to locate the printer to add. Figure 2 shows an example of a network with several computers and multiple printers. Select the printer, and click Next.

5.
If prompted to install a driver, click Install Driver, and click Continue to proceed.

6.
Select or deselect Set As The Default Printer. (The default printer will always be selected by default, and all “quick” print jobs will automatically go to this printer.)

7.
Click Next.

8.
Click Finish.

The printer will now appear in all drop-down lists for printer options, and you’ll access it in the same way you access local printers connected directly to your own PC.

Tip

To change which printer is the default, open the Printer folder, right-click the folder to configure as the default printer, and click Set As Default Printer.
