    Backing up Canon printer user preferences

    I hope I'm posting this in the right part of this forum, so apologies if not.

    I have a Canon TS8250 multi-function printer on my network and I have created quite a few custom print preferences (see uploaded acreenshot), but I can't find any way to back them up and I don't even now if it's possible.

    The settings I have created are user-specific. I know that because I created a temporary new user on my Windows 10 (Home Edition) laptop, but none of my custom preferences were listed. I did a few searches on the Internet and a few results seemed to suggest that an app called PrintBrmUi dot exe could do the job, but when I ran it, it didn't find any network printers and nothing installed on my laptop either.

    If anyone has found a way to back up user settings, I should be very pleased to learn how you did it. It's hard to believe that a big company like Canon have not provided a means to do this.

    My Windows Version is 2004 (build 19041.804).

    Hello @TheLyppardMan,

    I do NOT have a printer, but it should be something like this. Type this into a PowerShell Prompt and press Enter . . .

    Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_PrinterConfiguration -Property * | Out-File -filepath "$Env:UserProfile\Desktop\Print_Out.log"

    It should output a Print_Out.log file on the Desktop.

    I hope this helps.
