How to add a printer to your network

Did you hook the printer back up to the new computer? Int's not working.

If the printer USB cable is plugged in then the simplest way to ensure the computer can print to the printer is to go to your system preferences then to the printers and Scanners selection.

Next, make sure the printer is powered on. If the printer shows in the list on the left side of that window, hit the minus button to remove it.

Now hit the plus sign and a new window should appear listing all the available printers on your network.

Lastly, select the printer in the list and hit Add. The correct driver should download automatically if needed. If the printer shows twice in the list you can experiment selecting either in this process to see if one gives you better results than the other. There are a few reasons a printer can show up in this list but I won't go into those in this post.
