Using the Remote printing function, you can print documents from remote computers directly on a locally accessible printer. This allows you to print documents from remote computers on your own printer without the need to transfer files.
From the remote computer, you can access the same printers (including network printers) as you would on your local computer.
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding Windows 1903: We are aware of a remote printing issue in connections from a Windows device to a Windows running the new 1903. We are working on a fix together with Microsoft. We are also aware that there is an issue with PDF printing in connections from macOS to the new 1903. We are already working on fixing this issue as well.
In order to set up remote printing, you would first have to install the TeamViewer print driver. You will find this option under Extras > Options > Advanced > Show advanced options > Advanced network settings > Install remote printing
