Once you have this information check ‘Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use’ click next to continue. NOTE: If the printer driver is unavailable please visit the manufacturers website to obtain information on how to add the correct printer driver for your printer.
6. (If you are adding the printer for first time use then please skip to step 8). Click the ‘Use the driver that is currently installed (recommended)’ option and click next to continue.
7. Enter your printer preferences such as a desired printer name and then set the printer as a default printer or not, click next to continue.
