I don't know how to do it in Windows (I've never really used it), but
I would go look for the printer icon in the control panel and then
right-click on it, hoping that the resulting context menu would
contain an entry that would share this printer.

M-x customize-variable RET printer-name RET

Follow the prompts.  Enter the given printer name, eg
//Computername/printername (note the forward slashes, I suggest to use
these instead of \ slashes).  Don't forget to save your changes (there
is a button near the top that saves your changes for future sessions).
