    No Sharing tab on Printer Properties

    To share your printer

    • Open Devices and Printers by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then, on the Start menu, clicking Devices and Printers.
    • Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Printer properties.
    • Click the Sharing tab, and select the Share this printer check box.


    The above is all very well but after Turning on Sharing - I don't have a Sharing tab on the Properties Page.

    What do I do?

    Thanks - rev

    Is this a local or network printer? If network, you should install as a local printer with a standard TCPIP port instead.

    How can I find out which it is? There's nothing in the Properties about that - right now it's using a USB port.

    If it's on USB, then it's a local printer.

    Did you set up the homegroup yet?
