Set Up Printers in Windows

Before you start to print documents in LABL, you must ensure the printers are configured correctly for the documents you wish to print (labels, packing slips, pick lists, etc)

The setup process for printers in Windows includes four general steps:

1. Connect the printer via USB to the Windows machine you want to use as your printer workstation.

2. Download the appropriate printer driver (not required for all printer models)

3. Add the printer to your Devices and Printers Control Panel

4. Configure the printer preferences

The exact steps to set up your printer will vary depending on the printer's make and model. This article provides setup instructions for the most common thermal printer brands - Zebra (we recommend Zebra ZP 450), Brother, and Rollo - as well as the basic steps for a standard desktop printer like inkjet or laser printer.
