Import System.Drawing.Printing namespace in your application.

Add a DropDownList and change its name to printersList and write this below code on Form's load event handler.

private void Form1_Load (object sender, System.EventArgs e)


foreach (String printer in PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters)


printersList.Items.Add (printer.ToString());



The DropDownList will show all printers available on your network.
