Printing on Windows 10

This instruction guide describes how to print from your Windows 10 laptop to the UU multifunctional printers.

An instructional video is available for this manual. You may also continue reading the step-by-step instructions below this video.

  • Step 1

    Make sure you are connected to the wireless network eduroam.

  • Step 2

    Right click on the Start menu. Click Run.


  • Step 3

    In the pop-up window type:

    • to install the black and white printers: \\print.uu.nl\black
    • to install the colour printers: \\print.uu.nl\colour

    Click “OK”.

    Please note: ‘colour’ is spelled the English way.

  • Step 4

    Windows will search for the printer. This may take a while (up to several minutes).

  • Step 5

    When prompted for network credentials, enter your university email address (with all your initials) and your Solis password (the same as your email password).

    Check the box “Remember my credentials” and press OK.

  • There is also the option to sign in with your solis-ID instead of your email address (necessary for guest accounts not associated with an email address).

    Fill in:
    soliscom\<solis id>
    with corresponding password, and then press OK.

    The entry is stored encrypted in your Windows ‘credential manager’.

  • Step 6

    After some time, this screen is shown.

    If you want to install the other printer as well (Black/white or Colour), repeat the previous steps.

  • Step 7

    The printer has been installed.  When you want to print (e.g. in Word), select the preferred printer.

  • More information about printing (and for students also about print credits), can be found on www.uu.nl/print.
