  2. One or more printers will be displayed. Select the one with the word STUDENT appended to it, right-click on it and click on Connect.
  3. Wait for the printer drivers to finish installation.
  4. The printer should now, be available, in the Devices and Printers section of your Control Panel.
  5. Double-click on the printer to open the printer Queue dialog box and from the Printer menu, choose Properties.
  6. This opens the printer Properties dialog. Click on the Preferences button.
