Thanks for the suggestion but I dont think that will be able to handle in our 
case as we have more than 400 networked printers in the organization.
Guess we could script printer links based on OU though.. will look into that 
any way.

Emne: [THIN] Selecting default printer


I know that this question has been up before but so far I haven?t found a 
sufficient answer when searching through various forums and the thinlist 


We are using MetaFrame XPe FR2 (SP3) on top of Windows 2000 with SP2 and 
appropriate hotfixes. 

We have users that need to be able to set their default printer in the Terminal 
services environment. The most preferable solution for us would be to publish 
the printers folder and we have also tried that with good results however we 
don?t want them to be able to see the add printer wizard or at least not be 
allowed to run the add printer wizard.


Is there a way to remove/hide the add wizard via GPO or similar?

Or is there even a separate application, a modified verison of the printers 
folder that we can publish that will accomplish the same thing, which is 
letting them chose which printer they want as their default and nothing else?


This is starting to be a real problem for us since we have a few applications 
that wont let You chose which printer You want to print from but rather assumes 
You want printouts on Your default printer.

Thanks in advance
