I need to check on someone's computer in our company and what printers are installed - I'm building a new computer and need to know what printers to install on the new computer.

Said user is using the computer and is senior management. So, I'd prefer to check without taking them off their keyboard by going up there personally, or taking a remote session. If I'm digging for isntalled software, I can always just explore to \\<ip address>\c$ to see what's saved there.

Is there anyway I can do something silently like that for printers? Or am I stuck taking control and documenting the printers while they wait?
