Windows 10 used to have a Homegroup feature that allowed you to share printers, folders, and photos with other users in your home. While the Homegroup feature has been removed, it’s still possible to share a printer on your primary PC or connect the shared printer to another PC.

Here’s how it works:

To share the printer on the primary PC, start by typing Printers and Scanners in your search box and click on the result.

printers-scanner

Under Printers & scanners, click on the device you want to share.

Now, you’ll want to connect the other PCs that will be sharing the printer. Go to Printers and Scanners and select Add a Device.  Select the printer you want to add from the list.

add-printer-or-scanner

If you don’t see it, click on The printer I want isn’t listed.
