Tested here and works for me.  I can see how this would be quite handy when one has access to multiple printers and/or PDF-printing options.  Thank you for sharing.

Chris, I liked this so much that I recreated its functionality within AutoHotkey and, if you're cool with it, I'd like to add it to my sTray utility from a few NANYs ago.  I did notice your menu updates even if the default printer is changed outside of the app.  Are you checking this programatically with a hook or system message?  Or, are you using a timer to check the default printer every second or two?  That's about the only thing I have left to implement.  Cheers.

skwire - Yep, I'm cool with it ;-) I do have it check for the default printer every few seconds though I don't remember the exact delay off the top of my head.
