Prevent users from installing printer drivers

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options


Determines whether members of the Users group are prevented from installing print drivers.

If this policy is enabled, it prevents users from installing printer drivers on the local machine. This prevents users from "Adding Printers" when the device driver does not exist on the local machine.

If this policy is disabled, then a member of the Users group can install printer drivers on the computer.

By default, this setting is enabled on servers and disabled on workstations.

This policy setting does not affect Power Users.
