Last Updated on

If you have a long print queue, but the current default printer is not working, use this trick to redirect the current and future print queue to another working printer.

1 Use key combination Win + R to open run window

2 Enter control printers, press enter

3 Devices and Printers window will show up

4 Right click on the dead printer -> Printer properties -> Ports -> Select another printer which works -> Click on OK button

From now on, the old print queue and future print queue will be processed form the selected new printer, if in a domain setup, it can save you from changing all default printers for all affected users by doing this from the server side.
