Hi wendy and welcome to sevenforums

You are going to have to tell us a bit more abt your setup. Is the printer wireless with IP or cabled to the dlink.

Thanks in advance

That is true, because if the printer is either wireless, or cabled to the dlink, then you do not need to worry about sharing it. Just add the printer to the MAC by opening the printer utilities, and adding the printer by IP. If the printer is connected to the win7 by usb, then you need to share the printer.
