lock down default printer

By mscheurer ·
Does anybody know a way via group policy or REG hack to prevent users from changing the default printer? I want a color printer to always be the default, but users change it to black or an ADobe PDF printer. I need to prevent that.

OS:Windows XP SP2
Dell 3100cn printer connected via USB
Workgroup , No Domain/AD

Try Technical Q&A forum.

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions." Please re-post there.

Not only will you be more likely to attract the attention of those seeking to provide answers, but you will also make it easier for those seeking discussions to find such.

Thank you..
