    Add network printers

    Windows does not automatically detect networks printers ... with 7 and 8.1 I had to manually install them using their IP but it's not possible to do this with the TP ... any idea ?

    Are you adding them through here? (Search for Advanced printer setup ). Does it not work? Sorry I haven't a printer to try..

    I was not able able to find Advanced printer setup in the search bar. I tried through here and it worked fine.

    Thanks !

    Actually, although I have generally installed network printers manually, with Win10TP, if found my networked HP within only a few seconds. So, it it's not seeing your printer, there are other problems at play.
