I am fairly new with PowerShell so I am asking for your patience.
My department is looking for a way to Display/Modify a specific printer option on their print servers using PowerShell commands.
The option we are looking to change is the Color Mode. (weather the printer is set to print in B&W or Color by default)
We would like to know if there is a class that exists to do this?
I have been playing around with the command;
$PrtConfig = Get-WmiObject Win32_PrinterConfiguration -computername $env:COMPUTERNAME"
then looking at its classes and have not been able to find the Color Mode.
>$PrtConfig.Color >2 -------> Lexmark 4404C >1 -------> Fax >$PrtConfig.Print Quality >1200 -------> Lexmark 4404C >600 -------> Fax
We have looked at “Color” and “PrintQuality” as specified in the Syntax from the MSDN site (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394364(v=vs.85).aspx) but have not found how to display weather or not the printer’s default is set to print in B&W or Color. The Color class tells you if the device can print in color, not if it is set to print in color. [ex. a fax machine Color=1 (No color), Lexmark 4404C Color=2 (Color printing available)]
Once this cmdlet is found, we would be able to use the same/similar command to either set all the print devices to the same Mode or simply display its current setting.
Thank you in advance for all your help!
