Windows 8 driver for Deskjet 990cxi to install via Apple Bonjour

How can I obtain a windows 8 driver for my old Deskjet 990cxi to use to install via Apple Bonjour Print services for Windows so my Windows laptop can print via the Deskjet that is connected via USB to my Mac Mini which runs my network? Many thanks

Hello there huwthomas, Welcome to the forums!

I saw your post about sharing over your network and just wanted to share some information with you. The best option would be to try and share on your Windows PC by connecting USB. Windows: Share a printer.


If you have printer sharing enabled on your Mac, it should let you see it from your Windows machine if multicasting and Bonjour are enabled on your network.

See this guide: OS X Mountain Lion: Share your printer


If neither are successful, I would suggest looking into an upgraded printer.


Best wishes,
