Wireless Printing: Windows


Getting Started

First time printing from your Microsoft Windows device?
To get started with printing wirelessly from your Windows device, you will need to complete a one-time download for each of the following:

Download PaperCut Print Manager for Windows +

  1. Download and install the PaperCut Client; your NPCUID is required to download the file.
  2. Locate and install “PaperCutInstaller.exe”
  3. Sign in to PaperCut using your NPCUID.

Download the HP Universal Postscript Driver +
Please Note: It is not mandatory that you download the HP Universal PostScript Driver in order to print wirelessly, but it is highly recommended. (If you open an image, click on it to expand to full size.)

    1. Click to go to the HP Driver Download page and then select your operating system from the list. From the list of available drivers select the “HP Universal Print Driver for Windows PostScript.”
    2. Click on 'Download' and then wait for the download to complete (click for image...).

    3. When the file has finished downloading, click on the .exe file (step 1) and then click 'Run' (step 2) (click for image...).
      HP_universal_run_exe_file_2
    4. Next, click 'Unzip' to extract all files (click for image...).
      HP_universal_unzip_file_3
    5. If asked, click 'Yes' to allow HP to make changes to your computer; then click 'Yes' again to accept the license agreement (click for image...).
      HP_universal_accept-license_4
    6. From the 'Installation Mode' dialog box, click 'Dynamic Mode.' Then, click 'Next' (click for image...).
      HP_universal_select_dynamic_5
    7. When the installation process is complete, you will see the 'finish' screen; on this screen, click 'Finish' button (click for image...).
      HP_universal_finish_download_6
    8. The HP Universal PostScript Driver has now been installed; however, this process also installs a 'print object' in your device manager, which it is best to delete now to avoid confusion later. To delete this unnecessary print object, click on your start button and then on 'Devices and Printers' (click for image...).

    9. RIGHT click on 'HP Universal Printing PS' and then click 'Remove Device' (click for image...).

    10. If you’ve already installed PaperCut, you’re now ready to print!

Need to add a printer?

If this is your first time printing wirelessly from your laptop or your first time printing to a particular printer, you will need to install the printer on your computer.
