How to export printer settings in the registry?

By Blue screen ·
i am going to replace one computer to a new computer, same OS and Apps.
The one computer have a lot printers already install including local and network printers, when i install the new computer i want that new computer to have the same printer settings like the old one wihtout manually installing all of them.
How can i do that on the old computer?Do i export them in the registry on the old computer and if so how can i do that?
Please explain steps.
