    Default Printer still changes to last one used w/switch off

    I'm having the same problem - Windows changes my default printer to the last one used, but the "Set default printer as the last one used" is off. Also, when I go into the Devices and Printers window, it has to search every time (the green progress bar takes about 5 seconds while it loads the window). I am a client on our Windows Server SBS2011, and we have about 7 printers on the network, all on the LAN (HP7610, HP M402N, HP 8600 Officejet, HP 3005, HP JetDirect w/HP430 Plotter, and I have a Brother P2430 connected directly to my computer- this is driving me nuts

    I posted the "fix" in another thread. Here is the "solution". You are basically creating a task/batch-file to reset the default printer anytime it is changed.

    Nope, doesn't work.
    Printer still changes to the last printer in the list, not the last printer used.
    This is tiresome.
