Change or set the default printer in Windows 7

New current default printer successfully changed! Windows 7 lets you set as default printer either a real, physical printer, or a "print driver", which is a special piece of software that you can use for printing documents - the most common such print drivers are Acrobat's "PDF" and Microsoft' "XPS". In this tutorial, we will explain how to change your default printer to whatever you want, a real printer connected to your computer, a print driver of your choice, or even a "network printer" (a printing machine of some sort that is available on your HomeGroup -local network- either through wires, or wirelessly). Since Windows 7 lets you also share printers on your network, the actual printer that will print your papers can be anywhere in your house of your office building!
