Windows 10 Printing

CLASSE Managed

CLASSE Domain computers running Windows 10 will create printer queues for you automatically when you login. If the printer you need isn't available, please submit a service request. Printer Queues are managed by a cloud service called PrinterLogic. To provide this, an agent is deployed in your system tray.

If your computer is connected to RedRover or any other non-CLASSE network, you'll have to use a VPN connection. For information about how to configure OpenVPN to access the CLASSE networks, see https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/Private/OpenVPN

Non-CLASSE Windows 10 computers

You may need a professional version of Windows 10 for this to work.

Currently we have setup Windows 10 to work with generic Postscript printing to most CLASSE printers.

Make sure LPR/LPD is enabled

Install the Windows Components
  • Click on the Start button, then Control Panel
  • Click on Programs and Features then click Turn Windows features on or off, from the left sidebar
  • Expand Print and Document Services, and make sure the boxes next to LPD Print Service and LPR Port Monitor are checked
  • Click OK and follow the on screen instructions until the components are installed.

To add a printer to non-CLASSE managed Win 10 systems:
