Printer Restriction w/SS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 printers connected to my computer which is running SS.  I log as in my administrative profile and use both printers.  My kids log into the restricted profile which is locked down.  Is there a way to allow them to only use 1 printer (the default printer)?

     

    Thanks!

  • Hi Rob,

     

    You can configure the printer security privilege to restrict other users.

    ------------------------

    1. Log on with administrator account. Open Control Panel, Printers and Faxes.

    2. Right click the second printer and choose Properties.

    3. Click the Security tab.

    4. Select the restricted profile and then configure permissions for it. Click OK.

    5. Log into the restricted profile to test.

     

    Please check this method works or not.

    I was thinking of using SS or registry editing.  Your way is much easier.  Awesome, thanks!
