"Devices and Printers" window grouping / hiding printers
I have an HP Color LaserJet 3800. I typically install the same printer 3 times, each time with different drivers (PCL6 color, PCL6 monochrome, PostScript).
In Vista, when I go to Control Panel > Printers, all 3 show up.
In Windows 7, when I go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers, the system typically groups all 3 in a single icon. If I right-click on the icon, I see that many of the items on the menu now have submenus that let me select which of the 3 I want to perform the task (ie, "See what's printing", "Printing preferences", etc) for. In contrast, if I print a document on this system, all 3 are provided as choices. If I run printmanagement.msc, all 3 show up as well.
I can't figure out how the "Devices and Printers" window is deciding to group the 3 under the single icon but would like to make it stop. Does anyone know how?
