    Connect to USB on another PC


    I have a secondary printer connected to a PC via USB and I would like to use it from another computer across the network for printing envelopes without using remote desktop, is it possible?

    Got it shared and it shows in \\computer\printer but when I try to add a network location it comes back as an invalid folder. I did change the ownership and security to Everyone and checked all the boxes. Otherwise the printer does not show in Explorer.

    Does not show in/under network. After changing ownership to Everyone, it went to System and now I can't change it.

    On your networked computer, press the Win key+R. In the Run box type the computer name \\computername. Here you should see your shared printer. Right click this shared printer and choose Connect to put a shortcut to the printer on this computer.
