How do you stop all users printers appearing for all Terminal Server users. I need only the user logged in to see their printers

When my users log into the terminal services and then go to select a printer, they see all the printers for each of the users logged in with the session id next to the printer.  How can I configure terminal services to only show the printers that are available for that user when they log in?

apply and ok.

that does not exist for Windows 2008 Terminal Services.  Where should I go instead?
this might help:


Redirect only the default client printer
This policy setting is located in the following node of the Local Group Policy Editor:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Printer Redirection
The possible values are:

Enabled: If you enable this policy setting, only the default client printer is redirected in Terminal Services sessions.

Disabled or Not configured: If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, all client printers are redirected in Terminal Services sessions. By default, this policy setting is not configured.
