different default printers - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I use an older printer for most of my general printing, and an epson 1280 for my photo printing from PSE. I want the older printer set as the default for the computer, but I'd like to set the epson as the default printer for PSE only. Does anyone know how to do that? Thank you....

    Default Re: different default printers

    Eric, in Windows 98SE, Elements uses the default system printer. It's easy
    to change via File>Page Setup>Printer, but that will only be the printer
    choice for the current session of Elements; when you quit Elements and then
    restart, the printer will have reverted to the default.

    Chuck, that's how I have it set up. Do you know if it's possible to let PSE have its own default printer?

    Default Re: different default printers

    Eric, I don't think so; it appears to be reverting to the system printer
    every time it's restarted. Maybe someone knows a workaround; we'll see if
    anyone else responds...

    Try re-installing the printer that you want to be the default for this application. I know that if you use MS Photo Editor then the default printer is the most recent printer to be installed on that pc. Jason Smith

    I don't think you can have different 'default' printers, otherwise they would not be default. It is the de-fault of the operating system, not the application.

    Eric, when you print, you can select the printer on one of the steps, it shoud be just a mouse click (only if you use the file>print commend, not the printer icon)
