How to Add and Remove a Printer?

If you want to print any document, you need to connect the printer to the computer. In computer parlance this is known as “Adding the Printer”. If you don’t want to use it , you could remove the printer.

STEP 1: Adding the Printer to the OS

It’s very simple. A user needs to go to the start button. The user will then reach the control panel. You will see an icon named ‘printers and faxes.’ You then click to add the printer.

STEP 2: The Printer Wizard

Once you click to add the printer, a printer wizard will open. You then add the printer that you have attached to your computer. You must select the ‘local printer’ option.

STEP 3: Choosing the Port

Choose only a port option button that exists. Moreover, make sure that only the recommended port is selected. You then reach the page that asks you to install the printer driver. You will get a list of manufacturers and models, select from it. Some additional steps follow and the job is done.

STEP 4: Printer Removal

Open the printer by going to the control panel. Go the “printers and faxes” icon and click on it.

STEP 5: Deleting the Printer

All you need to do is right-click on the printer icon and select delete.

The printer adding and removal process is same for all Windows OS. There might be a few minute differences, but at a general level they are the same.
