    Set default printer based on network IP


    Thank you for taking the time to read my question.
    I recall in window 7 there was an option to set default print device based on Network.
    Has this option been removed or is it just hidden.
    Please suggest a method that I can set do you default print device based on IP address.
    Thank you

    Both of my printers are Ethernet cable-connected to the Router and I make the choice in Settings, Devices on whichever computer I've installed them on. What is set in one computer doesn't seem to affect another computer in that regard.

    Thank you Berton.
    I should have been more clear what I'm trying to do is Set up some non technical users. Each user travel to multiple offices,different locations different subnets.
    Wondering if there is a way to automatically set default printing based on The user's current IP address?
