Windows 7: Easy Print

20 Sep 2013   #1

32 Pro
Easy Print

I am unable to remove Easy Print from Server 2008.

I found this tip from Google search:
FYI, I had to disable the corresponding policy in group policy by going to: Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> RD Session Host -> Printer Redirection -> Use Remote Desktop Easy Print printer driver first -> disabled.

I cannot find 'Computer Config' 'Admin Templates' and the other units mentioned. Can you please assist?
I guess if I could start of with Computer Config I would be able to drill down so to speak ... Thanks!

You may not have Local Group Policy Editor installed. I'm not sure about Server 2008 but on W7 I think Ultimate is the minimum edition that has LGPE. There's probably a way to do it directly in the registry or in some Terminal Services control. I would search MS knowledge base unless someone else here is familiar with it.

Confirm you can find the Group Policy Editor as Miles mentioned
