The computers we work with today have a large storage capacity, most of them, so the amount of information we store is usually quite large. There are also cloud storage systems and so on. However, on many occasions we may need to have this information printed on paper, and this is when printers come into play..
One of the tasks we do with some frequency if Windows 10 is on an office computer, is to print. Therefore, Microsoft has integrated into Windows 10 an add-on called Print Management (Printer Manager) which is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) add-on that facilitates the tasks of installing, viewing or managing the printers installed on the computer.
There are different ways to access this administrator and today TechnoWikis will explain each of them in detail..
This process applies to the Enterprise and Pro versions of Windows 10 since for the Home versions it is not available, there we must directly use the Devices and printers section.
