Manually add printer in Windows 10 (build 9926)

I have a Samsung network attached printer that Windows cannot automatically discover.

Usually not a problem, since I can manually add it using TCP.

But in Windows 10 (build 9926) I never got the option to add it manually.

In Control Panel I have these options regarding Printers:

clip_image001

If I chose Add a device the Wizard starts searching (unsuccessfully) for my printer and then ends with this screen:

clip_image002

Note the link at the bottom that only directs me to this local help article:

clip_image003

There is no way for me to manually add the printer in this situation.

But it turns out that if (instead of Add a device) I click the Advanced printer setup, what appears to be the same wizard starts but this time the link at the bottom is different:

clip_image004

If I click that link I get the wizard I was looking for where I can add my printer manually:

clip_image005

I hope this helps someone in the same situation.
