Script to Add Printers on Windows 10 devices

Many organizations require printers for their daily works. Manually adding printers to employees’ devices is a tedious task. The installation and configuration procedure can be automated to save time and make the process easier. You can add printers on Windows 10 devices remotely by executing custom scripts via Hexnode.
