Get All Installed Printers in C#

This class locates in System.Drawing.Printing namespace 

so you need to add reference System.Drawing and then import it with using statement:

using System.Drawing.Printing;

To get all the printers available,you need to iterate the string values through PrinterSettings


For example:

Add a ListBox to your windows application and then use foreach statement for iteration:

foreach (string printname in PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters)

This will show you all the available Printers installed on your computer as seen below:


Because i've not installed any physical printers on my computer it shows the printer services.
