AnyDesk: Remote Printing from Windows 7 Host

I’ve come to enjoy and rely on AnyDesk since working from home under the CoViD-19 pandemic. But one thing was eluding me… Printing.

During the installation of AnyDesk you are prompted to install the AnyDesk Printer. Even doing so does NOT work for Windows 7. According to the AnyDesk webiste you need to manually install the print driver when installing on Windows 7. BUT… They don’t say where to find the driver.

After quite a bit of googling, I found a reddit post with the answer buried at the bottom as the last comment.

User “roadware” explained the driver’s location under the user’s appdata folder.

Location of the Driver

C:\Users\%usernmme%\AppData\Roaming\AnyDesk\printer_driver_win7

Thank you “roadware” you helped me to help my CFO print from home.
