    Printer Sharing (WXpHesr2)

    Just a quick question, a laptop in on our LAN - it has a printer attached.
    Can the printer be shared but not the Laptop please?

    The longer answer is to click on Start then on Printers and Faxes. Right-click on the required printer and select Properties, and click on the Sharing tab. Click on the "Share this printer" radio button, and give it an appropriate share name... And so on...

    Just to add the element that neither Dave nor John addressed, sharing involves devices or folders. If you share the printer as described by John and NOT any folders on the laptop's drive, other computers on the LAN will see ONLY the printer.

    Re: Printer Sharing (WXpHesr2)

    Many thanks for your replies. I have attempted to shre only the printer before, but without success. Therefore before I wnet along the checking to find what was shared or not I wanted confirmation that it could be done. Now I'll go and check the laptop's and printer's names. Once again, thank you.
