How do I add a printer to my Mac using AirPrint?

Windows laptops, see How Do I Add a Networked Printer? (Windows)

Use this method if you want to add a printer to your Mac printer queue without needing to download or install any printer drivers. If you just need a quick guide for a one-time print job, you can skip these steps by using the article titled How do I quickly print from my Mac using AirPrint?.

 Use AirPrint for adding Menlo School classroom printers or copiers to your Mac. You do not need to install drivers. (Faculty, see an alternate way to add a networked printer.)  

1. Make sure you're on campus when you add printers! Once you're here and on the campus network, go to the Apple menu and select System Preferences...

Then select Printers & Scanners.

2. Click the "plus" (+) button to add a new printer. 

3. In the pop-up list window, select the name of the printer. In this example, we will add the printer in Middle School classroom 502, or MS502. Then click the Add button in the lower right. Note that Menlo School classroom printers are shared via Printopia Pro.  Upper school classroom printers are named based on their location such as building A, B or the Library. 


Once you've selected these options, click OK. Please run a test print to check your setup.
