I'm using Windows 7 on my PC. I have turned on sharing for printer but I cannot find the share option when right clicking on my printer.

How can I share my printer on my PC? What's going on?

According to this link Share a printer @Microsoft, you should be able to find the printer sharing settings if you right click the printer and select Printer Properties. There should be a Sharing tab at the top of the properties window.

It is printer properties not properties. It works for me now. Great thanks! – Nam G VU Jun 18 '13 at 5:29
