Using Explorer to View Remote Printers

In Windows version before Windows 10 or 2016, I can open EXPLORER.EXE, put \\remoteworkstationname and on the explorer menu, I will see menu 'View Remote Printer.' I can also type in \\remoteworkstationname\Printers to see the remote printers. This is really coming handy when troubleshooting printer to see if the printer mapped to correct port or IP address. I can also install printer on the workstation remotely using explorer.

I can no longer see that option on Windows 10 or server 2016. I installed XYplorer but I also did not find that feature.

Any suggestion to get that feature? Thanks.

Hi and thanks for the suggestion. It's not supported at the moment and not immediately planned I'm afraid.
