If you drag a Shortcut to the network printer here it might work for you. pick the Printer Shortcuts folder to drop it to. C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows

EDIT: That seems to do nothing, hmm.

This is called a shell extension, you really don't need one as there's already a hidden extension to print to whatever printer you want, however, it's a drag and drop extension which means you'll need a shortcut to your printer in an easily accessible location to drag your files to.

However, if you want to create a new Extension, you can by following the instructions on the MSDN site here Creating Shortcut Menu Handlers (Windows)

Thanks for the reply.
I put a shortcut to my network printer in "Send to" menu and all works fine.
