Go to Start, Printers and Faxes or Start, Control Panel, Printers and other
hardware, View Installed printers. Right-click the printer and then click
Sharing. If the printer is shared, you will see the name of the printer.
If not, click Share this printer and a name will appear. You can change it
here if you like.
The path to the printer will be \\< name of your computer>\<the name of your
printer> If you aren't sure of the name of your computer, go to Start, then
right-click My Computer and click Properties. Then click the Computer Name
tab. It will show up here. I do not recommend using either a computer name
or a printer name containing spaces.
For instance, the path to my shared printer is \\toshiba\hp.
