Microsoft Add Windows 10 Universal Print Capabilities —

Universal Print capabilities in Windows 11 now available in Windows 10 – Microsoft Tech Community

Universal Print capabilities are available for Windows 10 version 21H2 or greater (build 19044.1806). They include the ability to show a PIN (personal identification number) dialog box sign-in when users attempt to run a print job. Some printer makers, such as “Epson and Sharp,” support PINs with Universal Print-ready printer models, Microsoft indicated.

Microsoft also added the ability to use its Microsoft Endpoint Manager solution to configure Universal Print settings, such as indicating which printers are available for specific end users. Microsoft had previously announced back in June that this Microsoft Endpoint Manager capability for Universal Print settings would be available for Windows 11 devices, starting in June 2022. It also had suggested back then that such support would arrive for Windows 10 machines as well.

Windows 10 devices can now use Print Support Applications, which are Universal Windows Platform applications typically built by Microsoft’s partners. Print Support Apps are distributed via the Microsoft Store and add support for various printer customizations.
