    Windows 10 - different default printer with different networks

    Windows 10 - different default printer with different networks

    This was a nice feature of Windows 7.

    Is it still possible in Windows 10?

    If so, how?

    Does not seem obvious to me.

    Thanks.

    Setting Default Printer via Startup Script

    I do it with VB logon scripts


    "Dim ps0 [<------ our printer server the printers are added/managed on]
    Dim printer

    ps0 = "\\ps0\"
    printer = "S14 - Oki ES4140" [<------- the name of the printer as it is shown on the server]

    Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    on Error Resume Next

    'Deletes all network printers
    Set clPrinters = wshNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
    On Error Resume Next
    For i = 0 to clPrinters.Count - 1 Step 2
    wshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection clPrinters.Item(i+1), true
    Next

    'Add Network printer
    wshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection ps0 & printer

    'Set Default Printer
    wshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter ps0 & printer" [<------ this bit sets it as default (note: this must be applied as the first policy before any other printers policies, otherwise it deletes them)]

    Windows 10 Sets Last Printer Used As Default Printer

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the printer settings and check if it helps.

    • In the search box, type as “settings”.
    • Go to “settings” and select “devices”.
    • Click on “printers and scanners” option on the left hand side.
    • You will find all your printers listed on the screen, below that there is an option
      “Let Windows manage my default printer”.
    • I suggest you to turn “OFF” the option “When turned on, the default printer is the last used printer”.
    • Now check whether you can choose the other printers or not.
    Hope this information is helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
