Does anyone know of a utility or can suggest a good way that I can create a 
shortcut that changes a property on a printer and then change it back?  I was 
thinking of maybe doing it in an Altiris rip file  but there has to be an 
easier way.  
  The idea I have and what I want to do is be able to create 2 shortcuts on a 
users desktop to create a quick way to change from single sided to double sided 
printing without having to click a dozen times to find it in printer 
properties.   One to turn on double sided printing for the printer and a second 
one that resets the printer back to single sided printing.  Anyone tried this? 
I know I could probably do it with a reg file but we do not allow our users 
access to running regedit.
