It's a little bit difficult to do this.
To show you how it could be done I created a new customized PrintPreviewDialog-Class (which inherits from the original PrintPreviewDialog) :
Public Class RMPrintPreviewDialog
    Inherits PrintPreviewDialog

    Property ShowPrintButton As Boolean
            Return myShowPrintButton
        End Get
        Set(value As Boolean)
            myShowPrintButton = value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private myShowPrintButton As Boolean = False

    Protected Overrides Sub CreateHandle()

        For Each c As Control In Me.Controls
             If c.GetType Is GetType(ToolStrip) Then
                ts = c
                For Each m As Object In ts.Items
                    If LCase( = "printtoolstripbutton" Then
                        printButton = m
                    End If
            End If

    End Sub
    Private ts As ToolStrip
    Private printButton As ToolStripButton

    Protected Overrides Sub OnActivated(e As System.EventArgs)
        printButton.Visible = myShowPrintButton
    End Sub

End Class

This Class has a new Property which allows you to switch the Button to "unvisible".
To do this you have to iterate (like it's shown inside the code) through the Controls from the Dialog to find first the Toolstrip and after this you have to iterate through the ToolStrip-Items to find the PrintButton. Now, when you have the Reference, you can switch it on or off ...

Hi ...
I'm glad to see that you have accepted the solution.
If this answer is working for you please be so kind and rate it.
There does not seem to be any simple way of doing it with PrintPreviewDialog Class (System.Windows.Forms) | Microsoft Learn[^].
