JSI Tip 0235 - Protect the Settings menu but allow users to manage their print jobs.

If you set NoSetFolders to 1 per tip 050, your users will not be able to manage their print jobs. If you want them to, use the Windows 95 Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) to drill down to:


Select each sub-key until the data in right hand pane is "Printers". From the Registry menu, choose Export Registry File and save it as Printers. Use Notepad to edit the Printers.REG file that was created and change RemoteComputer to MyComputer.

Save the file and Import Registry File.

Your users will now be able to manage their print jobs.
