Simplify print management with Universal Print

Simplify the printing environment to reduce IT cost

Universal Print moves key Windows Server print functionality to the Microsoft 365 cloud, running entirely on Microsoft Azure, so organisations no longer need on-premises print servers and do not need to instal printer drivers on devices.

Printers are easy to deploy and manage

IT organisations can deploy printers and register them with the Universal Print service without the need for a complex hybrid print setup. From Windows devices that are Azure Active Directory joined, printers can be detected with location-based discovery. Default printer preferences can be preconfigured, and user groups can be defined for additional security. A rich administrator experience provides additional functionality, controls, and reporting.

No learning curve for users

Users can continue to print from their Windows devices or Microsoft Office as they always have. There is nothing new to learn.

Lexmark support for Universal Print

Lexmark worked with Microsoft to ensure the compliance of our printers. A firmware update, validated by Microsoft, enables native registration and print support without the need for a PC application to facilitate printing. Get more information about the firmware update here. For help in registering your device or printing, see our how-to videos.

Even without updating firmware, you can simply use a Universal Print Connector application to connect printers to Universal Print.  This enables all devices to participate in Microsoft Universal Print for an easier transition.
