Selecting the non default printer in Task Scheduler?

I keep my printer heads clear by printing out two pages of color and black ink inside Task Scheduler. Now I have more than one printer and I need to do the same for that as well, and I can't get it to work? I want both printers to printout the same pics? It works fine with the default printer, but the second printer I can't get it to work?

Program/script:
mspaint

Add arguments (optional):
/p J:\Users\Darryl\Pictures\test_print_page2-cmyk.gif

Or how do I set the second printer as default printer in Task Manager, and reset the first printer back to default printer after it has done its task?
