Change printers when pringing envelopes

By jayk ·
Does anyone know if it is possible to change the printer Word prints envelopes on? I open the envelope pringing feature in Word and address my envelope, when I click on the print icon, it prints the the Windows default printer. I am on a network andwould like to print to our envelope printer but my default printer in Windows has to be set for a different printer. Is there a way in Word to pick a different printer just to print envelopes on?

Assuming you have the envelope printer installed on your workstation, I would click on File, Print, and change the printer to the envelope printer BEFORE preparing then envelope. Then do the envelope, then set the printer back.

You could write/record a macro that would change the printer and then change it back.
A better solution maybe to place an icon on the toolbar that prints to the "envelope" printer

The Print icon (in Office programs) ALWAYS automatically prints to the default printer (or to whatever printer was last used if you have printed anything in the current Word session).

The only way to choose a specific printer (other than the default) for a specific print job is to print from the File menu.

Your only other option would be to write a macro as suggested in Answer 2.
