    You can deploy AirPrint settings for Mac and iOS – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/air-print-settings-ios-macos

    You can configure some printer settings under device restrictions for Windows 10 – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/device-restrictions-windows-10

    But I’m hearing from a few people that this still doesn’t really help users get to local printers, and that seems the original intent. (@Henrik, if you’re getting this, please weigh in!)

    We won’t call this one complete. I’m switching this to “noted”, meaning we know you want it. Thanks again for the feedback!

    We found a solution for this that works but needs some setup.

    On a test machine you create the printers just as you want and export them.
    You then create a .bat file to run the export:

    %WINDIR%\System32\Spool\Tools\printbrm -r -c BrmConfig.xml -f C:\Printers\Printers.printerExport -o force

    These 2 files you need to put somewhere you can download them.
    In our case we will create a blob storage and add the files there.
    We then use a powershell script to remove existing printers, download the files localy to a workstation and run the bat file.

    $Printer = Get-Printer -Name "Test printer 1","Test Printer 2"
    Remove-Printer -InputObject $Printer
    Remove-item c:\Printers\* -Recurse -Force
    New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path C:\Printers
    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "https://blobstorage.blob.core.windows.net/Printers/Printers.bat" -OutFile "C:\Printers\Printers.bat"
    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "https://blobstorage.blob.core.windows.net/Printers/Printers.printerExport" -OutFile "C:\Printers\Printers.printerExport"
    C:\Printers\Printers.bat

    With this you can change settings, import print drivers etc.
    It works but to arrange this without the use of scripts and online storage would be better.
