Adding a printer (Windows)

Classroom computers maintained by Aalto IT have a printer pre-installed, but at the various departments users must install a printer on a workstation.

Follow the instructions below to add a printer to a Windows 10 or 7 workstation.

Windows 10

1. Open the Start menu and find Printers & scanners (see image below).


2. Select Add a printer or scanner.


3.  Then click The printer that I want isn´t listed (see image below).


4. The printer has now been added to the Windows 10 workstation.

5. Aalto’s Windows 10 workstations have a Secureprint print queue pre-installed. If it is missing from the workstation for some reason, the queue can be found in the path \\printvm01\secureprint (see image below).


If you are using a printer or multi-function device that does not have a card reader, print queues can be found on the server: \\printvm02\jononnimi (see image below).
