How can I share a printer in Windows 7

Shared printing means that after the printer is connected to a computer (host) via a data cable to set up sharing, other computers (clients) in the LAN can use the printer. Shared printing is the same as shared files. It is a service provided by the Windows system. To configure shared printing, two computers must be able to access each other.


1. When the printer cannot be shared or the printer to be shared cannot be accessed, we first open the “Network and Sharing Center” and select “Change advanced sharing settings”

2. Check “Enable network discovery” and “Enable file and printer sharing”, and then save the changes.

3. Then we open the “Computer” right-click menu and select “Manage”

4. In “Computer Management”, we clicked in turn: local users and groups-users-Guest, double-click Guest.

5. In “Guest Properties”, uncheck “Account is disabled”, and then confirm.

6. Then we open the start menu, enter secpol.msc and press Enter.

7. After opening the “Local Installation Policy”, we clicked in.
