How can i use the printer hard-connected to my PC from my wifi-connected Mac?

I have a home wifi network with a Mac, a PC, and a printer connected to the PC (via USB). The printer is very basic and doesn't have any sort of network printing capability or whatever.

I want to be able to send print jobs to the printer from my Mac via my wifi network - how can I achieve that? Can i install anything on my PC so it looks to the Mac like there is a network printer on the wifi network?

On your PC go to the Control Panel, then go to printers. Select your printer and right click on it and go to properties and click Share.

Go to your mac and search for printers - it should see it!
