I have just installed a new Lexmark printer. Is it possible to add a printer icon to the notification bar? At the moment there is one there for an Epson printer which relates to another printer on my local network. I can't remember how that happened, it just did!
You may be able to right-click on the printer icon in Control Panel and find the option to place an icon on the System Tray (that is its correct name). But I am only guessing, 'cos I have only ever owned Epson.
Perhaps if you re-install the printer, you may find the option during that action. Again, sorry, I am only guessing, though I do know the option does sometimes appear during installation of various programs.
