Adding a printer to your computer

How to add a printer to your computer using the Extension Printerlogic service.

Extension Printer Portal

Note: These instructions assume you are in an Extension or campus office and are connected to either a network cable or wifi (uie-uofi or IllinoisNet/UIUCnet). You may not be able to see the printers you are looking for if these conditions are not met.

1. In a web browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox recommended) go to the following url: print.extension.illinois.edu or click the little printer icon with a green plus on it.


If you are prompted to install the browser extension click here.

2. Simply select the office which has the printer you would like to add and then click on the
printer. You should receive a dialog stating the printer name and confirming that this is the
printer you want to add. After hitting yes the printer installation process will begin.
The page should look like the below example and have only your unit offices listed.




If you would like for the new printer to be the default print location check the "Set as default printer" checkbox.




3. Once the installation is complete you should receive a confirmation message that
the printer was installed successfully. Hit OK.





4. The printer should now be listed under Start > Control Panel > Devices and Printers






Browser Extension

These instructions are only needed if you are given the prompt below to install the browser extension.  This should already be done on the majority of Extension computers.




Once there select install extension and accept any other prompts that come up.
