Adding a Printer to Your Computer
Installing a Local Printer
Most new printers are plug and play compatible with Windows 10. When you receive your new printer, you can unbox it and remove any orange tape you see. After plugging in the power and turning the printer on, allow the printer to initialize (most new printers will have a display to show you it’s progress). When the printer finishes initializing, you can just connect the usb printer cable from the printer to your computer. Windows 10 should automatically install the printer for you.
