Here is a method to change the default printer in Windows:

  void SetDefaultPrinter(string name)
  {
     try
     {
        Type t = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("WScript.Network");
        Object o = Activator.CreateInstance(t);
        t.InvokeMember("SetDefaultPrinter", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, o, new object[] {name});
     }
     catch (Exception)
     {
        throw new Exception("Unable to set a default printer. The printer may not exist or the WScript.Network com object may have a problem.");
    }
  }
