I got caught!

Have had my scanner/copier for quite a long time. My daughter bought it for me and she and all my savvy grandkids don't live around me anymore. Staples going out of buriness here but I hurried over and bought a new one. It seems to me that when I finally find someone to get it in the house for me, that somehow I have to enter it so that my computer recognizes it and I can get my information. Can anybody enlighten me so that I can understand because sad to say, I'm not a technical wizard by any means. Thanks for any thoughts in advance. Barb

This is an all-in-one printer/copier/scanner machine?
Make and model?
Is it wireless? Most today seem to be.
Do you have either a wifi modem or router?

When you open the box there should e a quick install paper in there giving the basic details on how to proceed. Take a look, it should not be a difficult task.

Very likely (especially if HP) you'll be asked to insert the DVD first then follow along with the onscreen prompts.

Thank you,owbist, for taking the time to answer my plea. Son is going to try and help me tomorrow. I feel so dumb, but I surely want to thank you for taking the time to try and help. It is a HP and not wireless. Will hopefully let my son take it from here. Very frustrating. Barb
