Group Policy Preferences Registry Setting Default Printer
Posted on 2014-11-26
I am attempting to use Group Policy Preferences to assign a default printer through the Registry Policy. We are a Windows 2008 network with Win 7 clients. I am using the computer side for assigning printers, so the Default Printer selection is not an option. I have to assign them through the computer side as we have roaming users and therefore need to assign printers to a given area or locale. I want to assign a default printer to these locations to prevent roamers from getting some other default printer that may or may not be in that location. The Registry Policy was a suggested work around by Microsoft, but I cannot get it to work for some reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
