View Full Version : Adding network printer to Win2k Pro launchbar?

02-21-2003, 03:07 PM
Is there a way to put a printer icon on either the Win launchbar or even the Office toolbar so I can do drag-n-drop printing? I don't see a way, although hopefully it's because I overlooked something simple.

Thanks -

Duh. I just figured it out; must have been some Friday afternoon brain shutdown.

In case anyone else is curious, here's what I did:

Start -- Settings -- Printers

Right-click on the printer you want to deal with, and from the context menu select Create Shortcut.

You should get an 'error' message saying something like 'you can't create a shortcut here - do you want the shortcut on the desktop instead?'

Click Yes, and then just drag the new desktop icon to the launchbar or the Office toolbar.

I figured it was possible - I remember way back in 3.1 days, Norton Desktop made it available.

Happy trails!
