Detailed Description

You cannot use wildcard characters with Get-PrinterProperty. You can use Get-PrinterProperty in a Windows PowerShell remoting session.

You need administrator privileges to use Get-PrinterProperty.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
