Then, you should click on the ‘Switch to Category View’ option in the left pane if the Control Panel Window is in ‘Classic view’. After that, you should double-click on the ‘Printers and Other Hardware’ option on the window. You can then view ‘Add Hardware’ option under ‘See Also’ item in the left pane.
