    Sharing a printer Windows 10 & Windows 7
    I have a computer running windows 7 & a computer running windows 10 pro. At the moment the Windows 10 computer and the Windows 7 computer share the printer connected to the windows 10 computer via a homegroup.

    What I want to do is replace the Windows 10 computer with a newly built computer and share the printer with the Windows 7 computer. I am unsure how to do this. I have enabled sharing on the windows 10 computer but the windows 7 computer cannot 'see' the new windows 10 computer nor find the printer attached to it.

    Any help would be much appreciated
