    The only way would be to remove the old printer driver from the systems and set one of the new drivers as the Windows default so that BarTender uses that.

    It has been along time since I have used 2016 Print Portal as all my customers have migrated over to at least 2019 for this due tot he enhanced performance and so I am trying to remember how that older version worked. Wasn't there an option to add printers to the Portal that you needed to use and so you may need to look at that option? I seem to think there may have also been and Immediate Print tick box or similar that disables the printer selection screen. 

    As 2016 is coming totally out of support next month I would suggest you may want to look at upgrading this to a more recent version. There were some big changes between 2016 and 2019 and that included some additional control for configuring a BarTender default printer as opposed to using the Windows default and also setting up a redirection if a printer is not available and so that could be useful to for you.

    Hi peter,

    Thanks for your suggestion. Even if i changed the defualt printer, it seemed to not change in bartender. We have started the upgradation process to bartender 2021 and that seemed to have fixed the issue which wouldnt allow us to pick a printer in print portal. Thanks again!
