I am uncertain if this is by design, and if so, I understand.
I support a traveling comms team that supports a VIP user. Part of their travel procedure involves setting up a comms room at the various hotels they stay at, and as part of that they connect various printers via USB. The team has multiple HP Mobile 250 printers, and multiple different laptops that they get connected to. All laptops are running Windows 10 1909 (our Windows version is limited by our enterprise).
The team complains that when one of the users we support connects the printer to their computer, they can see multiple copies of the same printer. I'm guessing that this is down to the fact that each printer has a unique hardware ID, so Windows installs each one as a new and unique device.
Is it possible to have windows only show one printer, regardless of which physical printer is connected?
