Connecting older printer

HP Recommended
HP C4580
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I connect this older inkjel printer wirelessly to Windows 10? It works great with the USB attached, but I want the wireless connection.

Thanks... but I have spent 2 days trying to simply connect this wirelessly, including online with a HP tech for ages who then took over control of the computer and got rid of my current anti-virus for the Microsoft one, and then left the conversation with mo resolution 2 hours later. Promised a call back that never happened.  I am just going to use the USB until I can afford a new printer.

Yes, but I really can't spend any more time on this.  I am frustrated and I  have SERIOUSLY wasted 2 days....I cannot do this anymore. Simple solution: use the USB and wait until I can get a new printer someday.   Thank you for your replies, but I am moving on... really upset that I gave complete control to a tech with no resolution and the person never contacted me even though they asked for my phone number to call me back.

Thanks Dean...  I have had a lot of problems now as the first person to answer me (now post is deleted) was a hacker and I let him have control of my computer.... I have talked to HP and it seems there is no solution other than to  buy a new printer. And now I have the worry of what might be compromised.

You should look into using the RESET option in Update & Security of Windows 10.

I can't face resetting.... I have too much to reinstall and this whole thing has created a set-back in my timeline...  I am way behind deadlines for projects so now too stressed to manage computer reset.  I will just keep an eye on my accounts.  HP thinks it was more of a scammer, as he tried to "sell" me an Anti-virus programme and I didn't go for it so he did not get any of my credit card info.  Thanks anyway.
