5. Open the “File Explorer” program.

6. Find and open the “Downloads” folder.

7. Find the folder downloaded from the Sharp website and right-click it, then choose the “Extract All” option.

9. Right click the “Windows” icon at the bottom of the screen and click the “Run” option.

10. Type “control.exe” in the text box and click “OK”.

11. Make sure the “View by” is set to “Category” and then click the “View devices and printers” link under “Hardware and Sound”.

12. Click “Add a printer” at the top of the screen.

13. Click “The printer that I want isn’t listed”.

14. Select “Add a printer using an IP address or hostname” and then click “Next”.

15. Drop down the “Device type” to be “TCP/IP Device”. Type the IP address of the copier in the “Hostname or IP address” field. Leave the “Port name” field with whatever is populated there, uncheck the box at the bottom, then click “Next”.

16. Click “Haver Disk”.

20. Click “OK”.

21. Select the driver from the list with v3.9.1 and click “Next”.

22. Name the printer and then click “Next”. It is best to give it a unique name so you can recognize it from the list if you have more than one of the same model.

23. You will get a Windows pop up asking if you want to allow the app to make changes. Click “Yes”.

23a. If you get a pop up asking for a username and password, you will need to know the Administrator credentials for the computer or, more than likely, you will need to contact your IT department.

24. Click the “Do not share this printer” option and click “Next”. Notice that some versions of windows will not have this window. If you don’t get it just move to the next step.

25. You can now click “Print a test page” to see if it is working and then click “Finish”.
