Windows 2008 R2 View Print Server Properties

In Windows 2003 / 2008 to view the installed print drivers you could open your print server properties by simply right clicking white space in the printers windows.

With Windows 2008 R2 the process is just as easy, but since it's now different, it can be very difficult to find...
  1. Open Devices and Printers
  2. Highlight any object under the Printers and Faxes section
  3. At the top of the window three new options appear next to the normal "add a device" and "add a printer"
    1. See What's printing
    2. *Print Server Properties
    3. Remove Device
