Wireless Printing

One of the biggest (and avoidable) hassles is the process of moving a file from your personal computer to a lab computer so you are able to print it. Did you know that the NWU labs support wireless printing? The process is surprisingly simple!

Note: There may be some slight variations depending on the operating system you are using on your device.


1. Open Windows Settings and search "Printers & Scanners".
