Microsoft’s security update KB5005033 has changed the behavior of Windows 10 for updating printer drivers :
When a driver is updated on a print server, during the update on the client workstation which is done on the first print on the Windows 10 client, a power account is requested.
A registry key allows you to return to “standard” behavior which does not require a power account for updating the drivers.
This registry key can be deployed by GPO.

Once the GPO is deployed, updating printer drivers on Windows 10 client workstations no longer requires a power account.
