group policy default deploying printers by computer settings

Last Modified: 2015-10-05
I know how to deploy printers via group policies via computer or user settings. It seems like I cannot deploy a shared printer via computer settings and cannot set the printer as the default printer like I can do with user settings.

I have labrooms that need 4 printers installed with one set as the default. I do not want to do it by a user setting.  

I have windows server 2008 r2 and windows 7 as the client.

Thank you
