Is there a way when adding a network printer so all users can have it? We do not use a print server...

Hi

I use VbScripts that I run from Group policy to share out my network printers.
Create a text file and rename the extension to a .vbs file. Use this script in the file:

Set objNetwork = CreateObject(“WScript.Network”)
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “\\SERVER\PRINTER NAME”

enter your own server name and printer name.

Add the script to your login scripts in Group Policy. Hope this helps.
