Network Printing – Make an appointment with your ITG (or other technology representative) to install network printers & copiers. There are differences for each department and many require a specific code (print or copy) from your department administrative assistant.
Personal Printers – You are free to install your own devices (mice, printers, etc.) but be sure:
- your device is compatible with your version of Windows.
- you download the latest driver for your version of Windows (if required) from the vendor’s website.
- DO NOT plug in USB devices (especially printers) until you are sure you don’t need a driver from the vendor – once you go through the process and tell it you don’t have a driver, it’s difficult to make it show up again.
- USB devices want the driver installed BEFORE it’s plugged in.
