Why won’t my printer work on my imac?
If you can’t add the printer because it doesn’t appear in the list of available printers, it may be turned off, or your Mac may be on a different network now. If the printer was shared by another user, the user may have stopped sharing it, or the user’s Mac may be offline.
Can you use any printer with an IMAC?
Unlike Windows PCs, you can plug in almost any printer and the Mac will automatically install the printer without any disks. A Mac is still a computer, the only difference is the operating system.
