Adding print queue(s) to your computer.

Note: the instructions below are for Windows machines. (View Mac OS Instructions). 

IMPORTANT!!: If you are remote (not at the Law School), you need to be connected to Penn’s GlobalProtect VPN before proceeding with step 2. 

You may have more than one printer configured on your computer. If you go to Printers (type Printers in search box in lower right corner), you can see the printers that you currently have configured using the old print service and can configure these with the new print service. 

To add the new print queues:

  1. Hold the Windows key and press the R key to bring up the Run dialogue box.
  2. Enter in \\printers-law.kite.upenn.edu into the Run Window and hit Enter

  3. A window will appear prompting you to sign in with your account. Select “More Choices” and “Use a different account”
  4. Login with the following:
    Username: KITE\PennKey (fill in your PennKey username)
    Password: Your PennKey password
    IMPORTANT: Check the box for “Remember my Credentials”
    Click OK.

  5. This will bring up a window that will display the various Network printers. Double click on the printer that you would like to add to your device.

  6. The printer installation will run. When complete, the printer should appear under Printers (type Printers in search box in lower right corner) as “printername on printers-law.kite.upenn.edu”.
