Hi, i am wondering if there is a simple way to see if a printer is configured on a users PC based on the Printer name ?

I know i can access all valid printers via System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters but not sure what the simplest way
is to see if a name is part of the collection ?
