Windows 7: Sharing a Printer between XP and 7

Sharing a Printer between XP and 7


My employer has asked me to install the office printer on the new computer he added to the office. The printer is a Canon Multifunction Laser Printer imageCLASS MF3240. The printer currently runs from a machine operating Windows XP. The new computer operates with Windows 7. The printer is shared on the XP computer, but I do not know how to get the Windows 7 computer to link up with the printer. It is an older printer with no wireless or LAN support, but Canon has told me that the printer can be shared over the network. I am new to Windows 7, and would appreciate some step by step advice to that end.
