In Windows Vista and beyond you can use the PowerShell console to export a list of printers installed on a computer.
- Open the Windows Start menu
- Type in ‘powershell’
- Right click on ‘Windows PowerShell’ and select ‘Run as administrator’
- Enter the following command into the console
get-WmiObject -class Win32_printer | ft name, systemName, shareName >> c:printers.txt
This will create a text file on your C drive called ‘printers.txt’ with a list of the printers attached to the system.
