Printing during Remote Desktop

If you connect to a remote computer using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Connection (mstsc.exe) …

… press the Options button and look in the Local Resources tab …

… there are options there, already selected, that allow you to print from that remote PC to the PC you are connecting from.

It happens automatically (see screen shot above) as long as the PC you are connecting to has the same printer drivers as the PC you are connecting from.
