Want to apply Local Printer Settings to all users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings:


        I am in need of a little assistanace. We are using Windows XP with SP3.

    On some of our machines we have the local printer "Generic/Text Only" installed. This printer is attached to COM1.

    Our users are domain users with Roaming Profiles with Folder Redirection.



    I need to edit the Printer Preferences of the Generic/Text Only printer on the local machine so that the settings are applied to ANY user who logs in to that PC. The settings will be the same for all users. I do not care if its a domain user or local user who logs in a PC. What I need is If that PC has the Generic/Text only printer installed I want certain printing preferences to be applied to that printer regardless of the user.


    The majority of the searches show how to do this for network printers but nothing for a local printer. The closest I came was an article for Windows 7 but when I tried to adapt that article for my needs it did not work.


    Any suggestions would be appreicated.
