Is there a setting in Citris PS 4.0 to change all session's default printers?  Say I want all user's to print to a certain printer, is there a way to do that?

Thank you

    Nope, afriad not. The default printer within Citrix is inherited from the client machine - so will always be the one specified on the physical client machine. That said you can change the default printer on client machines (logon script, etc) which will then change the default printer when the user connects to Citrix.

    actually that is not true.  In PS 4.0 you can use policies to set the default printer.  If you have a network printer that you want everyone (or a group of people) to use, just create a policy for Session Printers and specify which printer you want to be set as the default.  

    You can also create multiple policies if different people need different printers.
