Display Default Printer

Post by devereux0110 » Mon Oct 05, 2015 12:26 pm

We all know how to map a printer and set it as the default printer, but is there a VBS line to display the currently set Default Printer.

I want to write the currently set Default Printer to a variable, map and set a new default printer and then change it back to whatever the original default printer was once a process has run

Any help appreciated

You are welcome. I just search for "vbscript default printer" and it was at the top.
