problem: can’t connect to network printer. solved! :D

So, yesterday I had to print a document in the office. There’s one shared printer in my department. I’d tried to connect it to my laptop, but it didn’t work. After asked some people and tried to google the problem, there’s a way to connect it: by add it as a local printer.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the printer device menu and add a printer. There will be an option like pictured below. Select “Add a Local Printer”.
  2. Create a new port. Hit next, and type your printer address, for example: \\printerserver\[printer’s name].
  3. Choose printer’s driver from the selection list.
  4. Finish the wizard. Your printer is connected and ready to print! YEAY!!! \o/
