Within the Windows and Devices Group, the peripherals team delivers all the Windows infrastructure for all forms of printing, from the driver model to platform APIs to user experiences for the world’s most used and depended-upon computer peripherals. This includes combining traditional 2D paper printing and cutting edge 3D printing, along with Cloud services that allow cross-platform, decentralized access to printing functionality.

We work closely with printer manufacturers to provide the best experience for our shared customers, and collaborate with many Microsoft teams to help them deliver complete product solutions.

Computer peripherals are influenced by advances in technology, and both IOT and Cloud computing are changing how people think about and use peripheral devices.
