Why Windows 10 doesn't see network printer connected to Windows 7?

Hi all. I'm having a problem with connecting a network printer to my laptop. The printer via a USB cable connected to laptop with Windows 7. I'm trying to connect to the printer with Windows 10. So when I'm in control Panel, under Devices and printers, a tab to add a printer, then the results of this search, it finds nothing. Although if you go all the way around (to connect the printer to the laptop with windows 10 and try to connect to it with Windows 7) the printer is detected. I want to note that sharing in the printer preferences were included in all cases. Interesting fact: if you go to the tab "Network" and open the computer to kotorumu connected printer the printer is visible, but with direct search from the menu "Devices and printers" it finds. I would be very grateful for Your help. Thank you.
Here are the screenshots:

Well, if you see it in the network that prevents it to connect? Why would you need a menu "devices and printers" ?
And using \\computername\printername it is quite possible to connect lets Windows. - celestino_Kuvalis commented on June 14th 19 at 19:17
The fact is that in the network tab, I can't do anything with that printer. Ie if you click RMB on it then there are only properties. I have it connected as a device to print to, not just that he was visible to all. - Howard commented on June 14th 19 at 19:20
In the menu there is no item to map a network printer?
Well, then the printing tab specify the path to it manually. - earl.Weissnat commented on June 14th 19 at 19:23
