One of the most useful Windows 11 tools comes to Windows 10
Microsoft is bringing PIN Protected Printing to its Windows 10 operating system – a feature that was actually created on Windows 11.
The tech giant has an “expanded feature set” it plans to bring from Windows 11 to make bridging from Windows 10 more natural, which should be shared across operating systems in a near future.
In order to avoid duplicate printing, especially in busy offices and workplaces, Windows 11 (and now Windows 10) users can set a pin on their computer. The file(s) will not be printed until this pin is entered into the printer.

Enterprise customers also get a print-related feature tied to Windows 10: the print support app is designed to support new features and for workplaces to print workflows. to the printing experience without the need to install additional drivers.
Windows 11 users also appreciated the operating system’s Do Not Disturb mode focus support, allowing users to continue receiving important and time-sensitive notifications regardless of Do Not Disturb status.
Windows 11 print and do not disturb features are heading to Windows 10 with build number 19044.1806, which is currently available for testing in the release preview channel.
