Setting Windows 7 default printer after image.

  • I have devised a script that allows you to set default printers for your rooms.
    Depending on your environment this can be a copy paste or a little more.
    I’m happy to help people adapt the script for their own use.
    The script is run as a user logon script (no extra permissions required)

    Our ticket information documentation is as below:


  • i was talking about GPO in windows.

    We have over 100 printers and FOG we felt would be fine for smaller installations.

    I do not use FOG to deploy printers because I have Active Directory and it works better in a Windows environment. I think one of the shortcomings of printer management in FOG is the inability to set the default printer. If someone with .Net/C# programming abilities wants to update the client code, we can talk.

  • So you put all the details for the printer in the GPO under computer settings? You don’t use Deploy printer feature (under users)?
    I see the default option there, but the admin of the printers seems more.

    I use GPO preferences based on OU or group membership of the machine. Windows XP (with updates) and up support GPO preferences.
