A printer is one of the most commonly used hardware devices for a PC, and if you own a printer, it is important that you have access to its details like the manufacturer, model, and serial number.

If there isn’t a sticker or it has been scrapped off the printer’s body, you can follow the steps mentioned below. A prerequisite here is for the printer whose details you are seeking to be connected to your PC, be it a wireless printer or a wired one.
