    Once a default printer is gone, the default will move onto something 
else.  If you remove a non-default, anything still pointing to it will 
either jump over to the real default or ask you the next time you run that 
function.  It depends on the function's coding.

    Just for the record, I want to again mention that it was a non-MS app 
that put it on mine.  I'm only saying this to prevent you from too quickly 
assuming that it came from the MS utility you installed.           lol
