How to add a Universal Print Printer to Windows 10

Universal print is a way to deploy printers in your organisation without the need to have a dedicated print server in your office. If you have printers in the cloud managed through Universal Print, adding a new printer is easy.

Add a Cloud Printer

Go to Settings > Devices > Printers and Scanners (or just search ‘printers’ in the Start menu)

Click Add a Printer or Scanner

You’ll see a scan start for printers begin, and some new devices appear with a cloud icon behind the printer icon, and listed as a ‘Cloud Printer’

Select one of the printers and click Add Device

After a moment or two, the device will show as Ready.

Repeat the process for any other printers deployed using Universal print.

The printer defaults will have been set by your administrator.
