    If you have a Wi-Fi home network, most printers will EASILY set up for this, and Win10 can find the right driver for you automatically during the installation process - unless you have a 3rd-world knock-off with a pirated design and crazy components.  If you pick any of the big names, you should be good from day one.

    Big names include HP, Canon, Brother, Epson, Samsung - but there are other brands.  I like my Epson EP 4760, which uses "reservoid" technology rather than cartridges.  (More ecologically friendly.)  But of course other factors apply such as weight, print overall usage, and other factors of versatility.  If you don't want the full four-function device, it may be overkill for you.

    Buy a basic ink-jet printer wherever you can afford it. Most of them are multi-functional anyway--so you might get a copy machine and fax machine with it. But just buy one you can afford. You never have to use the functions other than printing if you don't need them; they don't interfere with printing. 

    I know some people prefer one brand over another--but I haven't seen so much difference that it MAKES a difference when you're just getting a basic one. Epson, HP, whatever--the only differences are the costs of the ink cartridges and the ease of use. Go somewhere like Staples or Office max where you can actually LOOK at them and compare the prices. Ask questions and ask how much replacement ink costs. Any of the places you go will also sell the ink--so go to the wall where they are hanging and LOOK at the prices.

    Think about cost per copy, long-term.   Then the way to go is:  laserjet.   I strongly prefer HP printers.   

    You don’t THINK you want a copying machine - until you have one.   Then you won’t believe how much time you save by having your very own copy machine.   And, if you aren’t making copies of important documents, then somebody didn’t teach you right.

    It depends on your budget, the volume of print needed i.e. how many pages per month, and what you are going to print. Also to a lesser extent make and model of computer/tablets you are using. Update your post and we can advise - until then we are just guessing

    Buy an all in one printer, scanner & copier with wi-fi. My HP is ok. I buy generic cartridges on Amazon that last 10 times as long as the factory ones. The printers are dirt cheap because they hook you on the expensive cartridges.
