      I am trying to execute Get-printer in a remote computer  via remote-session but Network printers are not listed. How can I see which network printers associated with a particular user account on a remote computer?

      To remote to another computer you have to use an administrative account. This administrative account likely does not have any connected network printers on that remote computer. That’s why you cannot detemrine network printers remotely.

      Get-Printer should return all printers installed on the machine.¬† I’m not sure I follow “network printers associated with a particular user account”.¬† Can you post the code you are using?

      Network printer mappings are located under “HKCU:\Printers\Connections” You will need to enumerate the HKU hive to determine that information.
