Configure a printer on Windows

On the laptops you have to configure the printers manually, here is the procedure.

To configure a printer, you must already know its name, it is typically indicated by a label stuck on the printer. In the example below we will take the printer 'lpcopieur2-toshiba'. The term 'lpcopieur2-toshiba' must therefore be replaced by another name for another printer, unless otherwise stated all other information remains valid.

You can also consult the page 'CMAP printers list' to know all names and models.
