    If you go into System Preferences > Sharing, turn on Windows Sharing, Personal File Sharing, and Printer Sharing (if it applies). If your printer is hooked up to a Windows machine, you will have to set it up in System Preferences > Print & Fax > Set Up Printers... > Add. Select "Windows Printing" from the list, and choose the printer model that is closest to yours. It is quite possible that your printer model will not be listed, so choose one that seems similar. Do not, however, choose "Generic". Good luck!
