How can I print wirelessly from my PC? (Windows 10)

Faculty and staff can contact the ITS Helpdesk to obtain the IP address of the copier for installation. In addition, this article applies only to Faculty and Staff PCs using the Windows 10 operating system. Students must use the Web Print feature in Papercut to print wirelessly to a Papercut Printer.

To connect to a Faculty or Staff printer, please identify the location, model number, and IP address of the copier.   We currently use Canon printers with varying model numbers.  This article will cover the setup of a Canon 4225. You may want to make an appointment with the ITS Helpdesk for assistance with this installation.

1. Do a Google search on the copier model number.  Example, “Canon 4225 driver”  This should lead you to the specific printer’s resource page.

2. Select “Drivers and Downloads” and expand the Drivers menu.  Your Windows operating system should be detected.
