    Hi,

    Using a Java app I would like to change Window's default printer. Is
    that possible?

    If not there is still the option of showing users the print dialog and
    let them set the default printer manually. Unfortunately the dialog
    shown by PrinterJob.printDialog() shows a dialog that doesn't provide
    the option to set the default printer :( Is there a way around this?

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    cyberco
