Does it come up with Powershell get-printer

Also this driver has worked for some people.

Hi Joinaunion:
what is powershell get-printer.  Where can I access that?

nobus

i assume you open powershell and type in    " get-printer  " without quotation marks
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
