If a printer is connected to the desktop PC, it can be set as "Shared" in its properties and it will then also be available for use by other computers in the Local Area Network.

It should also be possible to set external drives as "Shared", but if they are subsequently unplugged, the shared status may be lost and have to be set up again on reconnection.
