Accessing the Portal:

There are three ways to access the portal if the client is installed:

OPTION 1

Browser:
Open an "Internet Explorer" or "Chrome (if extension is enabled)" (does not work in Firefox) browser and go to the Printer Install Portal URL:

http://printers.birdvilleschools.net

 

OPTION 2

Start Menu:
Click Start, All Programs, Printer Installer, Add Printer.  The Printer Install Portal will open in the default browser. You may need to copy and paste the URL into an "Internet Explorer" or "Chrome (if extension is enabled)" window if it does not display or work correctly in your 3rd party browser. (Like Firefox)

 

OPTION 3

System Tray:
Click the Printer Installer system tray icon and select Add Printer.  The Printer Install Portal will open in the default browser. You may need to copy and paste the URL into an "Internet Explorer" or "Chrome (if extension is enabled)" window if it does not display or work correctly in your 3rd party browser. (Like Firefox)
