Assign Default Printer To Applications With Automatic Printer Switcher

If you work in an environment where there are multiple printers and you need to print different documents using different printers. For example, we have two printers in our office. One is for draft printing which is a black and white laser printer. And the other one is a color laser printer which is used for printing legal documents and pictures.
Let’s assume I want to set the color laser printer as default for my Adobe Photoshop application and the black and white laser printer as default for my Microsoft Word application. Automatic Printer Switcher is a freeware application which does this job very easily.
