    Adding Printer to Limited User Account

    One of my friend who works in library has total 10 systems connected to a wired network. First we installed a Printer on the main host computer and shared it as we do normally. As of now all 10 computer users are able to use the printer comfortably. But many times it happens when a visitor needs to use the system as well as the printer. In that case we have created Limited User Account on all system for them.

    Now the problem is these limited users are not able to use the printer in any way though the printer is added to their computer. But we cannot provide them standard user access. So I wanted to know if there is any way I can allow access to these users to print on the shared printer? If yes, please let me know how.

    Thank you.

    Hello Jhal. Let me tell you that a printer connection is a per user setting. Which means every user has to make a connection to the printer. To know how to do the same, just go through the steps provided here: http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/NetPrinterAllUsers.htm
