Windows 7 – List printers from command line to text file

Using Windows XP you can use the command prompt to export a list of printers installed on a computer.

  1. Open the Windows Start menu
  2. Select ‘All Programs’
  3. Select ‘Accessories’
  4. Open the ‘Command Prompt’
  5. Enter the following command into the console

PRNMNGR -l >> 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.
