2) point to settings,

3) click printers,

4) then double-click add printer

5)after that you click next,(browse for the manufacturer of your printer, which by your profile is cannon.)

6)then you make sure you select "LPT1" and click next

7)Finally you can give your printer a name, after you do that You would select the yes button, to make that printer your default printer

Default printer is the printer that will print anything you choose to print.
