How to map a networked printer

Issue/Question

How do I map to a network printer?

Environment

  • MCC Owned Computers on the administrative network

Resolution

Make sure you have the Network Name of the printer. These are usually found on a printed label on the printer itself. It may be on the top, the front of the side of the printer. See picture for example.

  • If you are unable to locate a label for the printer, please contact the Service Desk.

1. In your Search Bar, type \\print (without the quotes) and press Enter on your keyboard. This will open the printer list.

Windows 10 Example

2. Locate your printer in the list, right click it, and then click "Connect...". The printer will then download the driver, and then install.

3. To verify that the printer has installed, check your Devices and Printers page.


If you have any questions, or difficulties mapping the printer, please call the Service Desk by pressing *1 from any Campus Phone.
