I log on to my machine as both a local Admin and as a domain user who is however a local admin too.But login in as the domain user I can't add a printer that's shared on a PC which is on the domain, because in the Printers panel it says

some settings are hidden or managed by your organization

However when I log in as local Administrator I can add the printer.

when I do

net user adminstrator

I get

Local Group Memberships *Administrators

Global Group memberships *None

while when doing

net user /domain username

I get

Local Group Memberships

Global Group memberships *None

I don't know if that's significant though.

Uder "lusrmgr.msc" I see that the domain user is added to the Administrator group.

Any ideas why that's happening?

found it.

HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Did you remove Everyone from security when you shared a printer? If so add your user and try again. Or is that PC turned on to be visible on network?

some settings are hidden or managed by your organization - that is not problem.

  • I can add the printer whne I log in as local Admin but I can't add it as a domain user because the 'Add printer' menu is grayed out – microwth Jan 10 at 10:56
