How can I disable users from printing

By eh936 ·
My question is that I am trying to prevent local users (limited account types) from printing ? What might be the easiest way to do
this on a Windows XP Pro computer ? The printer is attached to directly to the computer. I want to be able to prevent all users except for the account for the administrator to be able to print.

Thanks in advance

Just restrict the users on the security tab of the printer properties dialog box.

It would have been the easier "Thumbs Up" anyone ever earned. It may have also set the record for "Fewest Words Used to Earn a 'Thumbs Up'".

I'll give it that a try now thanks. Would it be possible to user Local Security Policy to do this also ? I tried looking though but I could not find anything there related to printing though.
