Windows 7: hide printers in application printer menu list

hide printers in application printer menu list

Can you hide printers from the list of printers that are shown on an select printer list in an application?

Some applications for example, Quickbooks install printers to create pdf reports within the program. I would like to hide these from the list of available printers in the select printer list.

Hi Cocophone and Welcome to the Forum
As this is very specific to the coding of the Quickbooks program i think you may be better served by trying the Quickbooks Forum. There is one for the US here:

Please don't think that you are being fobbed off but I really think that if what you want can be done this will be the best place to find out how.
Please come back anytime with your Windows 7 queries and let us know how you get on with this one.
I have to say though that I think the facility that you have with Quickbooks is a very a useful one if you haven't PDF facilities already installed.

I used Quickbooks as an example but it applies to the print menu in all windows programs. For example in the select printer menu for notepad shows a long list of printers. I would like to limit the list to only a few printers.
