I just purchased a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows 7, which I joined to my home network. The other devices on this network are a Dell Dimension 4400 and a Dell Inspiron 2200, both running Win XP.
On the new laptop, I've set up 2 user accounts, both of which are administrators. I've got an existing HP Deskjet which has been part of my network. I installed this printer under user account #1. When I log on as user #2, the printer is not installed, as was the case with WinXP. How do I install devices and make them available to all users in Win 7?

I also added a Print Server to my network, so I could take advantage of an HP Laser Jet which has a USB connection. So far it is installed on the Dimension only. I'm waiting for a response before installing it on the new laptop! Thanks!
