The Add Printer window will open. Right-click (or control + click) next to one of the icons on the toolbar. This will bring up a window with a list of available icons you can add to your toolbar. Drag the Advanced button on to the toolbar and click Done.

Select the Advanced icon you just dragged to the toolbar and configure the following:

Name: Use same name as entered above for printername.

Print Using: In the drop-down menu choose Select Printer Software and select the appropriate model (e.g. LaserJet 4350). Click OK and then click Add.

You will now be prompted to select the Installable Options for the printer. Configure the options that are available on the printer and click Continue. In the example to the right, the printer was equipped with a Duplex Unit. Your printer may not have the same options and you should adjust the settings accordingly.

The printer will be added and appear in your list of printers. It will also be set as the default printer. If you would like another printer to be the default printer, select its name in the drop-down list next to Default Printer in Print Dialog.
