I have to sing on as adminstrator to add a printer. How to do this?


How many accounts are there on your computer, if there is only you then you should already have administrator privileges and should be able to install a printer. It may be that you do not have these privileges despite being the only account holder. If this is the case go to control panel. Go to users and accounts. Entering that screen you should boxes that control the attributes connected with an account. You should be able to ascribe administrator status to your account here.
Good Luck
This should work but if it doesn't add the detail of the attempt and resubmit the query
Good Luck

While tring to install a printer, a sign poped up saying we needed an administrator.


Log off the computer or restart the computer and login with administrator account and password to install it successfully.

If you don't have an administarator account then reboot the system in safe mode and login with administrator account and make a account which has admin rights.

An administrator account user can only install the printer drivers or software.

Hi jmc66884,

Are you getting the user account control prompt? if your printer came in with the setup CD that is compatible with Vista just right click the setup.exe that you can browse inside the CD and choose run as administrator, I believe by trying that process your installation should progress.

hope this solve your printer installation problem.

I don't no how did you try.

If your both lap are connected in any way you can share printer to both your lap. Please try the following steps:

Step 1): Install the printer drivers to your first lap.
Step 2): Connect your printer to your first lap and turn it on.
Step 3): Navi gate Start -> Printer and Faxes
It will open the Printer and Faxes window including all your printer installed.
Step 4): Right Click on the printer icon whic you want to share and select Sharing.. from the pop-up menu appeared.
It will open your printer properties.
Step 5): On sharing tab click on Share this printer radio button and give a Share name also tick the list in the directory.
Step 5): Clik on Ok

Now your printer is ready to share to other computer in your network.

Step 6): In the second lap navigate Navi gate Start -> Printer and Faxes
It will open the Printer and Faxes window including all your printer installed.
Step 7): Click on Add printer to left panel of the window
Step 8): Click Next
Step 9): There will be option Local or Network select Network and click Next
Step 10) Again Next, The find printer dialog will be open. Type the firs 1 or 2 letters of the your printer name which you have given in share name of first lap and then clik find.
Step 11): The printer will be listed in a list Select and click ok and click on next in next dialog.
