just go to where your printer is installed and right click and you should have an option that says share printer, just click on it and thats it .
then go to whatever computer you want to use it for and install that same printer by going to printers and click on add a printer, then choose network printer , and then choose to write the printers name , it think is the second option, and then dont write it but click next and you should see the printer. click on it and thats it.
you should be done.
