Overview

Universal Print supports printing from Windows 10 version 1903 or later to a variety of existing in-market printers. It also supports upcoming printers that have built-in support for Universal Print. To make sure that print content is correctly rendered for the printer destination, users can use the Document Conversion feature in Universal Print.

How does it work?

When the printer is registered with Universal Print, the printer reports its supported print content rendering format. Then, when a client sends a print job, Universal Print checks to see whether the print content is already rendered in one of the supported formats. If it is, the print content is directly passed to the printer queue. If the print content is rendered in another format, Universal Print checks to see whether the user has enabled the Document Conversion feature. If it is enabled, the document is converted into one of the supported rendering formats. If the document conversion feature is disabled, Universal Print reports an error to the client.
