Changing printers through regedit

To change the Default Printer via Registry you need to take the name of the printer and the data value from:

Computer\HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Devices

This needs to be changed so that it looks like "\\server.domain.local\Samsung CLP-320 Series,winspool,Ne04:"

Go to Computer\HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows and paste this into the "Device" entry
