Windows 11 has the advantage of coming with several drivers and when they are not present, it quickly accesses the cloud to download them. That’s why it’s so simple to install virtually any device. This is also true for printers and scanners. Everything installs quickly. So we are going to tell you how to install and add a printer in Windows 11.
How to Install and Add a Printer in Windows 11
In fact, the process is quite simple. Having said that, we have to go to the settings. Then on the left side we have to click on Bluetooth and devices.
In that new screen we have to click on Printers and Scanners.
Now just click on Add device. All those present, whether connected locally or over the network, will be detected and installed. In fact, it’s a very simple process.
If the printer is not listed, which is rare, it is possible to add it manually. So just click on that option that is in front of the text the Printer I want is not listed.
If it’s an older printer we have an option for that. The same if it’s a network printer.
However who says printers says scanners.
Beware of Wi-Fi Printers
In some cases a Wi-Fi printer may not be detected and the problem may not be Windows related. This is because there are many users who have more than one wireless network at home. That said, if we configure the printer to connect to one subnet and the computer is on another, it may happen that automatic detection is not possible. Of course this all depends on your network configuration. However, it is something you should be aware of. This is if the printer cannot be detected.
