Set up MyPrint on a Windows Computer

The following steps will add a MyPrint print queue to your Windows computer. These instructions are primarily for students or others who have computers that aren't managed by Brown. If you have a computer managed by Brown, you can ask your computing support staff (ITSC or DCC) to add the queue(s) to your computer.

Find the Print Queue Link

  1. Look up the queue you plan to use in this article: MyPrint Print Queues
  2. Add the desired print queue name from the table to the end of \\\
    (For example, if you are trying to add MyPrint-BW, you will end up with \\\MyPrint-BW)
  3. Copy this to your clipboard — you'll need it in the next set of steps.

Add the Print Queue to Your Windows Computer

  1. Click on the Start menu (Windows icon) and type print. Select Printers & Scanners.
  2. Select Add a printer or scanner.
  3. After a few seconds, The printer that I want isn't listed will appear. Select it.
  4. Under Select a shared printer by name paste the print queue address from above.
  5. Wait for it to connect — this can take up to five minutes.
  6. Next, you will see a prompt to log in. Enter ad\ followed by your Brown username in the name field (for example, ad\jcarberr), then the password for your Brown username.
  7. Confirm that the Remember your Password checkbox is selected, and click OK.
  8. The Connect to Printer dialog box will appear. Click Yes.
  9. Repeat these instructions for any additional print queues you wish to add.

After following these steps, you can now Print to MyPrint from Your Windows Computer.
