    Hello Anyone,

    I would like to add a network printer to a client computer so that any
    user who logs in to that computer has access to it. All of our client
    computers run Windows 2000 Pro.

    When I add a printer to a computer it appears to add it to the profile
    of whichever user is logged in. Other users logged in don't see that
    printer unless they add it also. That means that I have to go through
    the Add Printer Wizard for every single user who may want to use that
    computer. That's a lot of work! Also, a user's default printer is the
    same where ever he or she logs in, even if they log in in the next
    building. Is it possible to make the default printer for a computer be
    a property of the computer, rather than a property of the user?
    Thank you in advance,
