Printing to other printers in a different session

i'm having a problem with terminal services printing. (server 03)  Users in this situation are obviously not administrators.  When users log in their printer is mapped for them but the printers in other sesssions are not available to them.  I know it is possible to show other printers in other sessions for everyone.  How is this done?

Go to Start->Printers and Faxes->Add a printer->Add a Network printer or printer attached to another computer->Find a printer in the directory. Select your directory/domain and hit 'Find Now'. Select the printer you want to install and hit OK. Let us know if this works for you.

i guess the thing is i want the users to have available all installed printers on server.  including the printers that are mapped for everyone's session.  i hope this makes sense.  If an administrator logs in he can see all printers in any session in his or her printers and faxes.  I want every user to be able to see all printers.  does this make sense?

A normal user will not be able to see printers that are mapped from another users session.  They will have to be power users or admins to see the auto created client printers.  The way we have our TS environment setup is we installed all printers locally on the server and then all users see all of the printers.  There are pros and cons for this setup.

thanks pmcquire i think in another instance when i saw this group policy was changed so the user had less privileges?  i guess they were still admins.  thanks for your time.
