    Default Printer selection

    Hi guys more of a question than a problem.
    I've been given a new laptop by work and I'm now working between 2 different office sites.
    My problem is this if I'm in the Glasgow office and want to print I need to select the Glasgow printer.
    Then when I'm in the Edinburgh office I then need to select there printers.

    Is there anyway I can get the computer to auto detect my location and print to the local printer??

    Thanks in advance

    Default Re: Printer selection

    Are these wireless printers? Surely if they are network printers it will default to the local one on the network as the other will not be available?
    I am used to using Mac's though where it seems to deal with this fine, I know windows can be a bit more needing.
