In Server 2008R2 and Windows 7 you have a link in your start menu to Devices and Printers, but this new layout isn’t showing the printer comment and location.
Solution: Create a new shortcut to printers
Create a new shortcut and copy / paste to following line
Name it Printers.
You can even change the icon which points to the default iconset
( %windir%\System32\imageres.dll )
Now it’s almost like the classic version, publish this shortcut on the desktop of your users!
More tips and tricks can be found on my Remote Desktop services 2008R2 page.
Martin, do you know how to do this, except the shortcut points to a remote print server, rather than your local printers? Thanks!
Thanks for this post. I will be sharing it with the Spiceworks Community.
