When a user opens a form, I would like to drop the name of the current default printer in a textbox on that form so they can see the printer they are defaulted to.  Also... would it be possible to have a command button coded so that when clicked, it opens the Windows Printer and Faxes screen.  That way they can change the default when nec.  Thanks.
