How can I get the list of all printers from the local computer?
I use System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters
but this property only return the local printers and I want as well the
network printers added on the local computer.

Hi Eric,

You can take a look at the PrinterSettings Class, which has a static property "InstalledPrinters". It gets the names of all printers installed on the computer.
