Set Default printers for all users. Windows 7

    Question

  • Our labs are connected using TCP/IP connections for the printer.

    We are trying to set up these printers such that all user profiles loaded from active directory get this printer as the default printer for windows 7 Pro.

    We would really appriciate any comment on this :).

     

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

     

    Please understand configurations of GPO is Group Policy related. I suggest posting a new thread to our Server Forum.

  • I need to do this as well but Group Policy is not an option.  For this GP to work you must have 2008 server.  For now I am stuck at 2003....

  • this isn't true.  You can create/modify/delete gpo's with a windows 7 machine that are applied from and reside on a 2003 server.  just get the gpo tools for windows 7.
