How to install a printer via IP address in Windows 10

Since I had to Google how to add a printer via its IP address in Windows 10 I figured I’ll document it here, in case other people run into the same problem:

  1. Select “Search” (the magnifying glass) and type “advanced p” in the search box.
  2. Choose “Advanced printer setup”.
  3. Select “The printer that I want isn’t listed”.
  4. Select “Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname” , then select “Next”.
