how to create admin permission for each time user wants to use shared printer?

Is it possible to make a policy to make all users in the domain controller not be able to print except after taking permission from the admin every time he wants to use the printer?

    Hello there,

    You can create a security group and then allow only members in this group to use the shared printers.

    Active Directory has two types of groups:

    Security groups: Use to assign permissions to shared resources.

    Distribution groups: Use to create email distribution lists.

    In Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012, you can delegate print management tasks directly to users who are not system administrators. You can also define default printer security settings that are inherited when you add new printers to your print server.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
