I have three computers in a domain environment that print to a WorkCentre 5765. Our organization does not put printers on AD, so it is mapped via tcp/ip port. These computers will be used by hundreds of separate people, and I need to configure the driver to default to 1-sided printing for every new user. So far I've only found info for configuring the driver before installation. Is there any way to set a default for all users on a Windows 7 machine after install? Even if I went through the steps to preconfigure the driver and reinstalled on all three machines, there is every chance that other defaults would need to be changed later, and reinstalling with a new config file every time does not seem like the best idea. I searched this forum and the web but I haven't found anything yet that will meet my needs. Does anyone know a way to do this?
The computers are Windows 7 64 bit, driver is PS. If I have forgotten any other necessary information, please let me know.
After writing the above question, I found the answer to my current problem under the "Earth Smart" settings. After spending all of yesterday and half of today on this, it's a bit funny to have found my own answer as soon as I gave up and asked for help. :smileyvery-happy: But I am still interested in how to set global defaults after installation in case I run into this again, so if anyone has ideas, I would love to hear them. Thanks, all!
