How to Add a Printer on a PC

Introduction

This article describes the process for adding a printer to your college-owned computer. You must do this before the computer can use the printer. Pima’s IT department initially set up your computer with printers that are near your usual working location. If you need to select a new printer near you or if you travel to a different College location and need to print, you can use PrinterLogic to add a printer to your computer.

Note: This article is about using PrinterLogic on Windows PCs. For information about PrinterLogic on Macs, see this Knowledge Base article.
