Your computer will need to be running Windows 10 21H1 or higher to use the Papercut service. The MacOS instructions are further down this page
Checking version of Windows 10:
- Type “winver” into the search bat, and press Enter.
The version needs to be 21H1 or higher. If this isn’t the version you are running, go to: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/topic/windows-10-update-assistant
Download and run the Windows 10 Update Assistant – this may take well over an hour, and you will be required to reboot on completion.
For the next steps, you will need to be connected via eduroam, VPN or a wired connection.
