    It is possible to connect a variety of printers to the windows desktop computer. The commonly available types of printers for windows computers are wired and wireless. For connecting a windows computer to the wired printer you require a cable that can be connected from the printer slot on the computer to the input slot on the printer. The wireless printers can be of two types. The windows computer can be connected to a wireless printer if it has a wireless adapter. The printer can be either is connected to the computer via Bluetooth or through the wireless network. If it’s a Bluetooth printer, then the desktop computer would require a Bluetooth receiver. If it is the WLAN connection, then the computer should have a WLAN receiver.

    Printers like

    1.Inkjet or Deskjet printers:- These printers are connected with the usb cable. you would be provided with the drivers cd along with the printer so install it and its ready to use

    2.Dot Matrix Printers ;- These type of printers are mostly connected with LPT port. These types of printers are mostly used in offices to print the bills.

    3.Network Printers :- The Network printers are connected with the RJ45 cable.

    You can use all these printers with the windows desktop computer.

    Note: you can also connect the wireless printers but your desktop should have the wireless facility. if you dont have then connect an wireless adapter externally

    Hi,there is usually two types of printer:wireless and wired. Wired printers used cable to get connected with the system and wireless uses bluetooth or wireless networks to connect itself with the computer. Usually depending on the quality of prints available,the printers are classified into three main category-Inkjet Matrix Printer,Laser Matrix printer and Dot Matrix Printer. Among there three laser printer is most aesthetic to use as it produces less sound and the quality of print is also superior. Noisy printers are out of demand,so laser printer is in. With obvious reasons this printer is rated high both for function and quality. Dot matrix generate poor quality of print as it uses degrading carbon. Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    Friend almost all the types of printers are supported and are compatible with the windows OS.

    Every printer has a driver disk with it.
    you just have to run it and your printer is connected to your computer and working.

    Regards

    dear friend,

    two types of printers available in the market.

    with wire & wireless printer.

    for with wire printer you need a usb chord to connect it with computer.

    there are two types of wireless printer-

    bluetooth printers which needs bluetooth receiver in your computer & printer.

    WLAN printers which needs WLAN receiver in your computer & printer.

    main advantage of wireless printer is you can operate these types of printers from a distance from your computer.

    If you want to connect Printers to your computer Wirelessly, then the printers must have Wireless Feature in them.
    In other words, both the devices must have Wi-Fi feature in them, then only your Printer would be able to connect with PC.

    There are many printers available in the market like :
    1. Inkjet Pinter
    2. Laser Printer
    3. Plotters Printer
    4. Dot-matrix Printer and
    5. Thermal Printer

    They may be connected to your PC with Wi-Fi feature if both the devices i.e. PC and Printer are Wi-Fi enabled.
