Windows 10 Getting Windows 11’s New PIN Protected Printing Feature
Are you still using Windows 10? Then here’s good news for you, Microsoft is rolling out Windows 11’s new PIN-protected printing feature for Windows 10 users. It has been suggested that the PIN-protected printing feature is now rolling out in Windows 10 as part of Microsoft’s initiative to bring a “scoped set of features” to Windows 10. Here are the details to know.
Windows 10 Getting New Printing Feature
As part of build 19044.1806 (KB5014666), Windows 10 will get PIN-protected printing capability, which will require a PIN to be entered before the printer can do its job. Users will have to PIN-protect the printing process and once the printer has got a single PIN, the job is done.
The whole idea is to get printed material securely, especially in offices with more than one printer. Also, it will help to avoid duplicate or wrong printouts. Microsoft also suggests that this feature will help avoid paper and tonal waste.
For enterprise users, Microsoft is also adding support for Print Support Applications (PSA) to Windows 10. This will ensure a smooth printing experience without the need for additional drivers.
The new Windows 10 update, which is currently on the Release Preview channel, has also got a new feature that will give important notifications even when Do Not Disturb mode is enabled.
There is no word on when the Windows 10 build, which was introduced in June, will be available to all users.
Apart from these, Microsoft is planning to launch a new version 22H2 Windows 10 with many new features and improvements. Earlier Microsoft had confirmed that it would support Windows 10 until October 2025. These updates are already in the release preview and we will have to wait for the official details to know when the company is planning to release them for everyone. Stay tuned for more updates!
