Printer Sharing on Your Network

It’s very annoying when you’re reading a document or web page on your laptop that you want to print out, but the only way to do so is to copy it to your desktop machine and print it from there. That involves trying to find a spare USB drive to save the document to, and can take a while. This long-winded process can be greatly speeded up by configuring your desktop PC to share your printer on your home network, so that any device connected to the network can print to it directly, even if they are connected wirelessly. In this article, I’ll show you how to share your printer on your network, and solve the most common problems when you do so.
