office.com/setup365 – Anyone who’s ever had to set up a printer in the past is aware that it can be frustrating. There’s a reason the scene with the printer smashing from “Office Space” still resonates with a lot of people, despite the fact that the movie was released in 1999. It isn’t that the experience has changed significantly in the past decade. Microsoft has done everything could to help make the process of adding printing as easy as is possible within Windows 11, though, which means we’ve got this option. This guide doesn’t go into every detail of setting up printing. The category is simply too broad in terms of available features, underlying technologies, and manufacturer-specific quirks to go into that much detail. Instead, we’ll show how to connect an printer on Windows 11 after it’s already installed. We’ll have to be able to generalize a bit as the process may differ from one device to another however, the main components of the procedure should be quite similar.
Before the wireless printer is able to be connected to Windows 11, it must be connected to the WiFi network. The steps are different dependent on the printer however, the majority of printers identify and set these settings automatically when that feature for printers has been activated in the printer’s device.
