How to Share a Scanner With a Homegroup


Scanners are used on computers to transform hardcopies into digital documents. If you are using a scanner in your home, but you have more than one computer in the house, you can easily share the scanner over your homegroup connection in Windows 7. Sharing a scanner over your network's homegroup can alleviate having to run cables and carry a scanner into another room. You can set up sharing of your scanner with just a couple of clicks and minimal knowledge of your system.

  • Click the "Start" button and then click on the "Search" bar. Type "homegroup" into the search bar and then press the "Enter" button.

  • Click on the "Create a homegroup" option from the menu. Click the "Scanners" box in the next menu that appears and the click the "Next" button.

  • Write down the password that displays on the screen and then click the "Finish" button.

  • Use the password to access the scanner on your homegroup with other computers.
