Printer list view in Word 2003 and Windows xp

I have a user that would like to change the " ICON " view to the list view " pull down" in word or Outlook.  When File -->print is selected.  Any idea where is is changed?

This is what I have all ready tried.
1) Change the default folder view in XP  to list -  no go!
2) Change the default folder view to Detail and apply it to all folders - no go!

My computer connects to about 10 different printers.... so I know what you're talking about but I believe the printer dialog is governed by each specific application... not anything you can control.  For example, the Adobe print dialog is different than the Office print dialog....

I am unclear what you're asking as there is no view when one does File, Print.  It simply prints up the print dialog.  If you want to change the view in File, Open, then you would go to File>Open>Views and select List from those options.  Could you please clarify?

I have my pc set to List view and it will remain in List view until I change it to something else.

Sorry, The computer is on a corp network where it is able to connect to multiple networked printers. This person has about 4 different printers that she can chose from. I have added 2 screen shots of what i'm talking about.

Hope this Helps
