Testing out Windows 8 in my corporate environment when one of my users was asking me questions about one of his printers not working right. When trying to browse to his computer and view his printer list, I noticed the option is gone.

Did they accidently leave this out, or is there some other way to add/remove/change printer settings for remote devices on a network?

Yes they forgot to put this button on the Ribbon which was there on the command bar. They also forgot some other commands like "Compatibility Files" for UAC virtualized folders. In short, the ribbon's half-baked. :p
