Will Win 8 support adding printer manually? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was trying to add different printers and Windows 8 devices and printers only does automatic search. However, I need to add via IP address. Is this going to be implemented later? Or not at all?

    In Windows Explorer,

    1. Click on Network on left side
    2. At the top choose add a printer instead of Add device and printers.
    3. Click on The printer that I want isn't listed.

  • Can the "Add a Printer" button be added back to the "Add devices and printers" page again? I prefer using the list of icons in control panel rather than the various categories, but it therefore means I don't have access to the advanced printer setup dialog anymore!

    It's just the more obvious place to look for such a feature - I'm probably not the only person that thinks so.
