Win 7 Quick Start Guide This brief guide explains a few basics about the Windows 7 operating system and setting up your new computer or newly re-prepped computer: logging in; changing your password; setting up Outlook; mapping a network drive; creating a shortcut to a user folder (on the desktop and/or taskbar); creating shortcuts to frequently used programs (on the desktop, taskbar, or start menu); adding printers; setting your default printer; setting your browser homepage; importing favorites.
Adding printers. Generally, appropriate printers are added by a script, tied to a user's profile. Sometimes, the printer is not listed as an available printer. This brief guide has instructions for how to add a printer (locate, download, install driver).
