- Printing on another PC's printer
Re: Printing on another PC's printer
That was the problem: the laptop could not even see my desktop PC.
Finally, after more fiddling with the laptop PC's settings -- and I
don't even remember now what it was that did the trick --
the desktop PC did appear in the Network view of my laptop and I could
also se the printer under the desktop PC and was able to add it to my
laptop's printer list, after it's driver was also installed there.
After all this, I must admit that doing this with my previous corporate
XP Pro laptop was a lot easier and the communication between the two
computers noticeably faster, too.
Now, if I could just make my bluetooth mouse automatically recognized
after booting up, just like my laptop can connect to my router
automatically, then I would be even happier. There must be a way to make
the mouse automatically sync up with the laptop's bluetooth instead of
me having to manually tell the laptop to add the mouse after every cold
boot. Interestingly though, the mouse stays sync'd up across reboots.
