1) Open System Preferences by clicking the Apple icon in the top left corner and clicking "System Preferences."

2) In the System Preferences window, click "Printers & Scanners."

3) In the Printers & Scanners window, click the + button on the left side.

4) In the Add window, Right click (or Control+Click) in the empty space in the tool bar and click "Customize Toolbar."

5) If the Advanced gear is not already in the tool bar, drag it to the tool bar and click "Done."

6) Click the Advanced gear and fill in the following information:
Type: Windows printer via spoolss
Device: Another Device
URL: smb://
