Printer Set-up for Windows

How to install a printer on a Windows machine.

Printer Setup on Windows 

  1. Make sure you are connected to IllinoisNet. Go to the network address by searching for "Run" or "Windows + R", and type in the address: \\\Drivers. If you are prompted to enter credentials, enter your netID email and password to continue. Do not check the box to remember these credentials. 

    1. If you accidentally entered the wrong credentials and you are unable to change them to continue to the printer setup, go to your Settings. Select "Credential manager", then "Windows credentials". It should be listed at the top of the page under Windows credentials. Click the option to remove the credentials, then try again. 

  2. Click on the "Printer Setup Script" folder, then "Windows". There should be two folders inside: "Printer-Setup" and "Unmap Printers". To install printers, select "Printer-Setup". Make sure you right-click on the folder and select "Run as Admin" to continue. 

  3. "Printer-Setup Script" will map all available printers based on your status at the iSchool (Faculty/Staff or student). After selecting the script, it will ask you to choose what location you want to install printers for, 614 or 501. Enter the corresponding number (1, 2, or 3) to make a selection.

  4. The script will then ask you to enter your current status. Enter the corresponding number (1 or 2) to continue. 

  5. You will then see a prompt reading "Mapping printers for (location)...". If you see this window, do not do anything or click anything outside the window. Otherwise, you may cancel the script and the printers will not be installed. 

  6. Once the script is finished, a new window should appear showing the list of printers and a completion prompt at the bottom. 

  7. Once the script is done running, it will ask if you want to map other printers.
    1. If you select "1", the script will restart with its initial prompts, and you can install printers for the other building.
    2. If you choose "2", the script will close. 

Unmapping Printers on Windows

  1. The "Unmap Printers" script is used to remove all iSchool printers from your computer. This script is primarily used for troubleshooting printer issues. 

    1. If you need to troubleshoot printer issues, please run the mapping script first to re-map all printers. If this does not fix the issue, then use the "Unmap Printers" script to remove everything before adding them back with the mapping script. 

  2. To open the "Unmap-Printers" script, follow steps 1-2 for Printer Setup above, then select the "Unmap-Printers" script and follow the prompts.
