printers not showed on printer folder, but usable when printig from an application (windows 7)
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
problem.
Any idea?
Thank you
Alessandro

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.
