Configure your Windows 7, 8, or Vista Computer to Print to Pharos

Both the Pharos Black and White (CUMC_B&W) and Color (CUMC_Color) printer queues will be set up on your computer when you have run the appropriate installation file and followed the instructions on this page.

    NOTE: you must be on the CUMC campus or connected to VPN to use the download link.
