Prior to Sonoma, the Printer Queue folders were in ~/Library/Printers.

I had some Printer Queues in my dock so I could easily control my printers.

In Sonoma, I can't find the folders any more.

Does anyone know where they were moved to and/or if they're user-accessible so I can add them back into my Dock?

Printers are managed differently in Sonoma. Look at /Applications/Utilities/Print Center.app.

This sucks. I liked being able to stick my specific printers in the Dock, see their status etc, and the icons were a great visual to quickly see which printer was which. This generic print center thing is ugly.

Oh, looks like there's an "Add to Dock" menu in the Print Center app.

Open Print Center. Select the printer you want and go to the Printer > Add to Dock menu.

The dock icon that it adds still opens *Print Center*, but it'll jump to the selected printer. I guess that's better than nothing. The old way was more elegant.
