Problem with sharing a printer

I networked my wife’s classroom 4 computers together by using the Asante switch. I just hooked up the internet cable (WAN) and the RJ45 going to the computers together. The internet (Ethernet) cable already has internet. The situation arises when I installed a USB printer with one of the computers. I had a problem with sharing the printer with the other computers.
My question is How can I share the printer with the other computers. I already Right click on Devices and Printer/Printer properties/Sharing/Share this printer. However, the other computers do not see the printer. I also let the OS search for other devices, but it doesn’t see anything.

Your help is very much appreciated.
