Install Brother Printer to Laptop, I have a Brother jet-ink printer at home for over an year now. It used to work perfectly fine and was connected to my Windows computer for all this long. recently my computer malfunctioned and I had to get rid of it, so I tried connecting it to my laptop. My laptop is Windows 10 configured and I do not know how to connect it to my Brother Printer as the service provider technician did everything with the last installation process. Does anyone here knows how to set my Brother printer as default on my Laptop?
