Windows 7: Devices and Printers. No location tab

29 Jan 2010   #1

Windows Xp + Windows 7
Devices and Printers. No location tab


I can not find a way within Windows7 to display a printers location. I have searched for the option to enable a location tab however I can only enable the following tabs/details about my printers:-

- Name
- Model
- Classification
- Device category
- Manufacturer
- Status

Is it possible to display a printers location within Windows7 like XP?

PS. I'm also having the same problem enabling the "comments" tab/field.

Many thanks

Hello Nigel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Opening "Printers" using this shortcut below will have a "Locations" column in it.
