With the advent of modern technologies, it has become quite easy for people at home or even at the office to use the simple, easy, and efficient ways that are there for connecting a printer to one’s laptop or a PC. Here below are two ways; wired and wireless in which you can connect your printer to any laptop.

Connecting a Wireless Printer to Your Laptop

The first thing you want to do is locate the software installation disk that comes with your wireless printer. Insert it into your disk drive on your laptop and the software installation should start automatically. If it doesn’t, simply browse for the installation icon either through my computer on your desktop or through the start menu. Once the installation of the software is complete, the software may require you to reboot your laptop. After you’ve done so, look for a configuration utility icon on your desktop, if it doesn’t start automatically. The configuration utility will search wirelessly for the new printer and allow you to rename it or even change the security settings to prevent others from printing it. This time you also want to select it as your default printer to make it easier to find when you are ready to print. 

And that’s how you configure your wireless printer to work on your laptop.

For connecting the Epson Workforce WF-3620 Printer or any Such Model Printers to a Windows 10 Laptop or PC

All processes are similar for connecting any of the printer models that are still supported by Windows 10 to a laptop, as there is a huge database which is really nice. Now the one nice thing about this Epson printer is it actually has wifi capabilities. But to make things more simple, we can connect it with a USB cable. It is actually quite easy to connect modern computers to your printer. Taking the USB, we are gonna use one of your USB ports which are located on the right side or left side of your machine, and stick it right directly in. Now as soon as you do that, Windows 10 is gonna see that you wanna set up a specific device. If your printer is in its database, it goes to work automatically for you. For setting up that printer, you have to check on its progress. For that, you need to go into the settings. So for that click on the windows icon, and then click on the little gear icon. That brings up the settings. From there go to the devices option, and click on that. As you can see, your device is now ready to set up and go. If you go to the printers and scanners bar, click on that to see the printers that are available now and for the specific printer in the options. So once you are done with that, you can actually open up the documents that you want to print from and select that specific printer from your drop-down option. And that’s how you can add a wired printer to the Windows PC system or a laptop.
