      The best way is not always power shell,

      GPO works best for printers

      add-printer -networkconnection \\server\printer
      XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

      I saw that command and this is the thing:

      when I'd opened PS session on my computer it worked but...when i opened Ps on to a remote computer in the domain I'm getting an error that server name (the printers server) doesn't exist

      i want to connect a network printer to a user remotely and not interrupt him and connect the printer in GUI mode.

      i want to connect a network printer to a user ....

      ... so "this user account" has to connect to the network printer. That's why GPOs are used to do it because they can run in the users context. You cannot attach remotely to a local user sesion. We have 2019 ... is it really asked to much for a user to connect to a network printer by himself?

        It should work as a login script that runs as that user.

      GPO is the best way to achieve this.

      Take a look at "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry", there are a lot of switches that could suit your case.
