Get rid of “Do you trust this printer” popup

Below is the popup in question – (Warning this doesn’t work on Windows 2012 from my testing but it works on Windows 2008)

Group Policy / Local Group Policy (just on one server) with this setting called Point and Print Restrictions and it exists under User and Computer Configurations:

Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Printers
User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Printers

Enable it and  under Security Prompts you want to select “When installing drivers for a new connection” and “When updating driver for an existing connection” to say “Do not show warning or elevation prompt” like here:


Either restart the machine or run gpupdate /force
