The step-by-step instructions in this walkthrough provide a brief tour of the new Location Aware Printing feature in Windows® 7 (available in Windows 7 Professional or higher). These instructions assume that your computer is connected to at least two networks. If you don’t have printer connections on both networks, you can select the built-in Microsoft XPS Document Writer in place of a physical printer to follow these instructions.

To use Location Aware Printing

  1. Click the Start menu, and then click Devices and Printers.

  2. Under Printers and Faxes, click a printer to select it. In Figure 1, the HP LaserJet 2840 is selected.

    2. In the Select printer list, click a printer to use as the default printer for that network.

    3. Click Add.
