Printer Icon in Task Bar?

P
#1
Hi,
Is it possible to put icon in the task bar that would bring up the printer
srceen? Right now I have to click start/control-panel/printers to get to the
printer screen. I have two printers and I'm changing default printers all
the time.
Thanks,

Hi Phil,

It's easy, if you have the Quick Launch toolbar enabled (it is enabled by
default). "Quick Launch" is the group of icons just to the Right, of the
Start button, for Show Desktop etc.

Open Control Panel and then drag-n-drop the Printers icon from the Control
Panel window, to the Quick Launch area. Release the mouse button and a new
"Printers" icon will be inserted into Quick Launch.

Hope it helps,

Thanks Andrew. I tried it before with the words "printer" and that didn't
work. I didn't know that I could get to the printer icon in the control
panel.
Thanks again
