Our business just got a new copier.  The old copier drivers work on the new copier, but I want to update workstations to the new driver.  So, I added a 2nd printer GPO (users/policy/windows/deploy printer) and (computers/policy/windows/deploy printer), so the transition would be seemless to the end user.  In a couple weeks, I want to remove the old printer driver gpo (gpo setup the same way).  If I simply delete the old gpo, will the printers disappear from the users device & printers?  If not, what do I have to do to remove the old printer install?

First you backup the old GPO
Delete deployed printer from old GPO
Give enough time for all devices to get updated GPO (week or two)
Delete old GPO

Commented:
Does it mean when we delete the old Printer deployment GPO, the printer mappings will also disappear from the Workstations?
