My boss has a printer that he uses to print checks. Normally, I have set up another printer for them to use. But every now and then, there will be users add my boss's printer. What happened is when my boss is printing checks and it could mess up the print job and causes my boss to reprint the checks.

My question is that is there a way to prevent users to add that particular printer? That printer does not has password feature (HP Color LaserJet M452dn) and everyone is local admin.

We are under a domain.  thanks

Do you use a print server or directly connected to boss computer?  If print server ... right click printer and choose security ... remove all users but your boss domain account  .... or restrict the rights of the users already there from printing if  you do not want to remove.

If local to his computer ... then remove sharing and they won't even see it or have access to it.
