Using Explorer to View Remote Printers

Hi,

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.
