  4. In the next window, you will see a list of all printers available on the printer server.  Scroll through the list to find your device.  All new canon copiers will begin with 'USM-(department name)'.  If you are unsure of your device you wish to add, the name is located on the 'Orange Sticker' on the front of each copier.  The location field will list the Campus Identifier such as GOR - Gorham, LAC - Lewiston-Auburn, or POR - Portland.
  5. Once you choose your printer name, click next and it will add and configure your printer for you.
  6. To set the new device as your default printer, right-click on the newly added printer and select 'Set as default printer'.
  7. If you still have the old copier, right-click on any old 'VLxxxx' copiers in your 'Devices and Printers' window and choose 'Delete'.
  8. If your copier requires department ids, you will need to contact your department's AA to get your id number, and follow the instructions below.  This will save your department id on your computer and not require to type it each time your print.

    4. If you print confidential information at a shared copier and want to make sure it doesn’t print until you are there to pick up your print job, place a checkmark in front of “Authenticate Department ID/PIN at Device”.
    5. Click OK, then OK again, and you should be ready to print.
