  1. How 2 Share a printer


    I have two computers, one running Windows 10 and one running Windows 7. I have one printer connected to the windows 10 Computer.


    QUESTION: Could you tell me how I can connect “sharing” and print from my Windows 7 computer to the printer connected to my Windows 10 computer.


    Just tell me the simplest way to do this PLEASE. I have read lots of NETWORK information but can't get any of it to work.


    Thanks in advance, Charles McKnight, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Step 1: Go to store.
    Step 2: Buy a less shitty printer.
    Step 3: Pick up some beer while you are there.
    Step 4: Enjoy both your new printer and your beer.

    In all seriousness, I have had more issues with Lexmark printers and their shitty drivers then any other manufacturer, HP is a close second though.

    However, if you don't want to get a new printer*Laugh :laugh:, and I can understand that, when my Lexmark was giving me the same troubles in Win7(and Vista) I had to make sure the Windows firewall was ON and the firewall service was enabled and running. After I shared it I could re-disable the firewall and firewall services.
