We cannot see a printer in the WVD desktop.  My instance is that my home printer does not forward over to the WVD desktop.  Is there something I should check?  I am checking the box to allow printing when logging in.

Are you connecting via HTML browser or RDP session? What OS is the local machine?

@stevenzelenko Due to the nature of the web client, printing behaves a little differently. When trying to print, there should be a printer called Remote Desktop Virtual Printer (redirected X). It should be the default printer. Selecting this printer will allow you to print to a PDF that gets sent to the local device where you can print to your local printer.

 

Hope this helps.
