Installing a Printer

Step 1

Open Internet Explorer.

**Browser must be Internet Explorer for the links to work**

Point your browser to the link shown at right:



http://psfs01/printers/ for office printers

http://pstxlab01/printers/ for lab printers



The Faculty/Staff or lab Active Directory printers window appears.


Browse for the printer that needs to be installed.


Printers are listed by campus, room numbers, and then model.

***Note: Due to the room renumbering of Truax.  Printers for Truax may be listed under the old campus identifier T or the new campus identifier M.


There may be multiple pages of printers listed – if so, there will be a link at the bottom of the page for “Next 100 printers.” Click on the printer you would like to install.

Note: The list of printers is alphabetical as of the last time the server was rebooted.  If you are unable to find your printer initially you may need to check the end of the list.

Note 2: You can also use the browser’s search function to find the printer.  Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F, then type in the room number of the printer you seek.


Step 2

After clicking the printer to be installed, click “Connect” on the left hand side of the page.

Select “Yes” to the pop-up Printer Connection alert window.



Once the install is complete, you will see the following page telling you that the printer has been installed on your machine!


Your printer is now ready to use! 






To check/change your default printer:


In the Devices and Printers area you can see what default printer is set.  The printer displaying a checkmark is the current default printer. 


To change the default printer, right-click on the printer and select “Set as Default Printer”.
