Hello All,

I am on one of my final A+ mock questions, and a I am having trouble deciphering this question.

Which of the following can you use to create a default printer on a Windows 98 computer?

A The add printer wizard
B The System Properties sheet in the Control Panel
C A printer's Properties dialog box
D The Disk Defrag Utility

I have C, as you have the option to 'set as default printer'.

Do you agree? Could it be A?

    Accepted Solution

    yes, you can set the default printer in the add printer wizard, but that doesn't help much if you want to select an existing printer as default :)). Otherwise use the win.ini :)))
