Default How to Share a Printer

What are the steps in sharing a printer in ME? I want to add my XP Laptop to
this wireless printer, but I don't know how to share the printer. How do you
share a printer in Windows Me?

Assuming that the printer is attached to a computer in a very similar way
to as in XP. That is by selecting the printer on the host, properties,
selecting sharing and enabling however first you need to enable file and
printer sharing (Network Properties | Configuration and click the button
File and Printer Sharing.

However you mention the printer as being a wireless printer so does that
mean that it is a network printer rather than being attached directly to a
PC? If that is the case then on your XP Laptop use the Add Printer Wizard
(Settings | Printers & Faxes | Add Printer). Select to add a Network
Printer and then either browse to it, select and continue.

There is not "Sharing Tab" on my printer icon. If so How do I add my printer
to the network?

How is the printer connected to the network? Is it connected to a PC or
directly to a router using either a wired or wireless link? If the later
it is what is referred to a as a network printer and you need to connect
to it as such and it will already be enabled for sharing.
