How can I change the global location of a print spooler in Windows NT? I need to change the location from the D drive to the E drive.

A. Changing individual print spoolers is a pain and involves registry hacks. Changing the global location of all spoolers is easy. Double-click My Computer, double-click Printers, and right-click any empty space in the Printers window. Select Server Properties, go to the Advanced tab, and set the spooler location in the Spool Folder text box.
