Thousands of the same printer


New Member

I'm having issues with my surface 2.

The problem is tat in the devices it lists a printer over 5000 times, the printer is attached to another pc on the same network.
The printer isn't shared anymore(itsnot even compatible with surface) I've even removed it from that pc fully.

Is there a way of telling the surface you don't want a printer(without doing that to every device listed)

There are some scripts in

To delete all printers you can use
cscript prnmngr.vbs -x

Open an Admin Command Prompt and change to the directory
CD C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US
cscript prnmngr.vbs -x
