  1. Is it possible to view printer installation and delete history?


    I need to know if someone is randomly deleting one printer from one computer and then adding it back at work. We are using a software which randomly stop printing with this specific printer but we can't detect any faulty with the printer nor with windows. And there is a suspicion that someone might intentionally fucking around with the device installation.

    Is it possible to view a printer installation date?
