Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/31/2017

SYNOPSIS

Retrieves printer properties for the specified printer.

SYNTAX

Get-PrinterProperty [[-PropertyName] <String[]>] [-ComputerName <String>] [-PrinterName] <String>
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-PrinterProperty cmdlet retrieves one or more printer properties for the specified printer.

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

You need administrator credentials to run Get-PrinterProperty.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get printer properties

PS C:\> Get-PrinterProperty -PrinterName "Printer name"

This command returns a list of properties for the printer specified by the PrinterName parameter.

Example 2: Get printer properties for all installed printers

PS C:\>$Printers = Get-Printer * Foreach ($Printer in $Printers){     Get-PrinterProperty -PrinterName $Printer.name }

This command gets all the printers into a variable $Printers and then loops through all the printers and displays the properties.
