How to add networked printers on a Windows machine:

1.  Open Internet Explorer, other web browsers do not work. Type http://bsuprint/printers and press the Return/Enter key.

2.  At the Windows Security pop-up, enter your StarID credentials: username and password.
    –  starID@bemidjistate.edu (BSU faculty and staff) or starID@live.bemidjistate.edu (BSU students)

3.  All the networked printers that you have access to will be displayed.

If you don’t see the printer you want to add on the list, send an email to helpdesk@bemidjistate.edu asking to be granted rights to that printer.

4.  Click on the appropriate printer. The page will now look like this:

***If you do not see the Connect button, you have a compatibility issue. To fix that, go to Tools, then Compatibility View Settings. Click Add. Click Close.

6.  You will then receive a confirmation page telling you the printer installation completed. Always print a test page.
