You should be able to share it so long as the other computers are connected on the same WiFi network.

You may want to use Microsoft Accessibility to help if you cannot figure it out.

Is the printer supposed to also be a Wifi printer?

If so, you will need to consult the manufacturer’s instructions on how to set it up on the Wifi network.

 

If not, what Glen said is exactly what needs to happen.

Of course, consulting with the printer manufacturer is always useful.

Also, you will need to go to the printer settings on the computer it is connected to and set it as a shared printer, or you can connect the printer to your router.

That is the best way.

We have three computers our home,  all connected by WiFi,  I have a printer connected to one by USB, I would like to be able to print from the other computers. I find conflicting instructions by searching Google. Can someone give me simple instructions on how to do this?
