    Cannot locate any LAN printer

    I've installed W10, a couple of days back, and things don't go as smoothly as I had hoped. I have a couple of issues and lets start with using printers via the local network.

    I have a Windows 10 computer, let's call it PC1, and there's a Windows 7 computer next to mine, say PC2, both connected on the same switch.

    In another room there's a Xerox WorkCenter copy machine/printer, connected directly on the lan. Let's call it PRNT1. On PC2 there's a shared HP laserJet 1000 series, let's call it PRNT2.

    On PC2, I run "find printer" and it locates PRNT1 and can use it with no problem.

    To the PC1 (W10), now: when I run "find printer" it doesn't see any of the two.

    Can anyone help out?
