How to link Windows 7 laptop to XP Home network for printing


Active Member
Hey people, just wanted to know is it possible to link a windows 7 laptop to a 'group' which already has 2 xp desktop pc's on it.
Main reason is 1 of the desktop pc's has a printer attached to it and we are using the group link for that

cheers, all

yes, you add a W7 PC to a workgroup in exactlt the same way as XP. You will need a Windows 7 driver for your printer though.
