Print Script for one specific user
Hi all I am in need of a bit of scripting to help solve an annoying problem....
A member of staff has a local printer attached to there PC, and like all other workstations has access to the central print room colour unit and some others, including a local PDF printer (for use with non-MSFT apps) and the usual MS Image writer etc...
Now this user has issues at times with not having the local printer that is attached to the PC they are sat at as default and it choosing a network printer or another local one such as the PDF creator as the new default.
Now most people do File > Print and check the name of the printer and manage quite well, however this user fails to do that and just does File > Print > Print before even reading what the printer is, sometimes jobs end up at the colour copier, sometimes as a PDF or sometimes to the local one and this person does handle sensitive and confidential data.
Now you may think stupid user and I'd agree as setting default and reading from the list when you have ~4 to choose from isn't hard and the rest of my staff that have identical setup's have no issues at all doing so, but this user is very instant and says they cannot believe they are the only person in the world that "cannot" print to there own printer (aka not manage to choose it from a list).
So I need a solution to solve this, my first idea was remove all other printer options and deny them access to network ones thus they could only use the one on the PC. This was thrown back instantly as not acceptable so is some scripting guru able to knock me up a simple script that I could put as a logon script to this users account perhaps that simple allows me to forcibly set the default printer to a named one that I choose? The printer attached is a simple HP LaserJet 1010 usb printer so nothing networkable or fancy I'm afraid and if the user logs onto a pc that isn't there own it just goes meh cannot see that and doesn't set anything?
Any help would be appreciated, if it makes a difference the user in question uses a Windows 7 X64 PC.
