It appears Access' Printer.DeviceName returns ACCESS' default printer.

I'm looking for a way to read the WINDOWS default printer.

I found THIS which allows me to SET the Windows default printer.

Private Declare Function SetDefaultPrinter Lib "winspool.drv" _
Alias "SetDefaultPrinterA" (ByVal pszPrinter As String) As Long

Open in new window


But, I can't find one that READS it.
