Wireless Printing — Windows
This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):
Most of the student computing lab printers located in labs are "open" printers, meaning you can connect wirelessly to them with your laptop and print directly. This tutorial will assist you in setting up your Windows-based laptop for wireless printing.
Go to the Start menu and in the search bar type Run and select the ‘Run’ program from the list.
When the Run box appears enter the following: \\print1.uidaho.edu
Select the OK button to continue.
Enter your NetID Username (e.g. ad\jvandal) and Password to access the printer list. A list of available printers will open, find the printer you want to add. The printer names listed all start with a departmental prefix. Student Computing Lab printers start with the ‘SCL’ prefix. We also have a complete list of prefixes.
Double click on the printer to add it to your local computer, or right click on the printer and select "connect." Wait for it to install the driver and appear in your printing options.
If you have trouble connecting to printers after following this tutorial, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 208-885-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
