    I have a new windows seven business pc.
    If I add more the two printers I see only two on the printers folder. Always
    one of this is the default printer.
    But If I print from an application (es. word pad) I see all printers.
    I've removed and reinstalled the printers but I always have the same
    Any idea?
    Thank you

  2. If the printers are using the same port, Devices and Printers will display
    one device for both printers. There is a chevron to display the properties
    for the other printers when you right click the printer. If you have a PCL
    parallel card look for the printer properties on the Computer object in
    Devices and printers.
    Since you have Business, launch printmanagement.msc to view the local
    printers. This is the user interface provided by the print team.
