I.E. if on the copiers there is a Hole Puncher device, Booklet device..

Use Secure Print.  

Automatically detect if the print job is in color or black&white.

Most standard Universal Printer Drivers like HP have these basic feature sets. Would be great to have them built in to UP.

Any plans to support advanced finishing options such as duplex and stapling? This is currently a showstopper. Some users are even reporting letter is the only paper size option.



I am currently testing Universal Print with Intune for my client. Although the printer is discoverable in my Azure environment, the installable options are not available (hole punch, staple, extra trays, duplex, etc). I also do not have the ability to configure any centralised options (b/w 2-sided, etc)

This is a big set back for this new product. Are there any plans to include these for the UP driver? Or a feature to enable using the host driver via the connector?


Third-party Printix already have these features available

Looking forward to your response

Windows 11 supports advanced finishing options and PIN release for Universal Print ready printers.

@Braeden_Petruk_MSFT  Will Windows 10 support advanced finishing / features set and pin release?

Lot's of folks in it land that are planning on staying with 10 for a while. Basically, as long as they can - IMHO.



@Braeden_Petruk_MSFT  could you please confirm if the following options from the document Supported print options - Universal Print | Microsoft Docs are supported in Windows 10 currently or if they are only available in Windows 11?
