I have shared my HP 5650 Deskjet printer on my home XP computer in the past. However, after I received my Win 7 PC, I'm having the hardest time connecting. I went to the following site to download a Win7 printer driver; however, it said the driver was already part of the Win7 Operating system. I just need to plug it in and the driver would install. However, now how do I switch the printer from a local one to connect to the shared one. I tried adjusting the ports, but didn't work. I'm sure this is easy, but can't get it.
Install the printer on windows 7, then move it to the XP PC.
Then on the 7 PC, gopt to the ports page and click add port.
select local port then enter //pcname/sharename.
