To use a campus network printer, you need to install the driver intended for that printer on your computer. Windows 8 and 10 64-bit can take advantage of Rensselaer's printers.win.rpi.edu server, which makes installing a printer very easy. Note that, if a printer has special features such as two-sided, color, or large paper sizes (B size paper or the large-format, roll-feed plotters), you will then need to configure the printer driver to select those features.
Before installing the printer, you will need to know the name of the printer you want. Check the lists of public printers, which are sorted both by type and location.
ou will find it helpful to first configure your Windows account for printers.win.rpi.edu. Doing this avoids having to supply your User ID and password when you print.
Note: When you configured a Rensselaer laptop, you probably did the steps below. If so, you can skip to the next section on installing a printer.
Note that the following printing method also works for Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
