Could someone point me to a tutorial on how to set up printer sharing?

Hello,
For the first time ever, I want to share a printer with another wired computer on my home network. Sorry haven't a clue and didn't find anything with the search except broad examples. Is there a tutorial. It would be from a W7 machine on a wireless router to a W8 machine wired in. Thanks for any assistance!

Hello glennc,

Could this be what you're looking for?

Enable file and printer sharing

It says Vista but i think the underlying principles are the same for Windows 7 as well?

Hope that helps!

EDIT:- Here's another great tutorial

Thanks so much for the response and help! It is a place to start. You'd think since CPM I might have shared a printer at least once, but no! Well appreciated!
