Default Windows 7 - Now that's annoying...

I just finished printing to my Epson 4000 from my (new) Win 7 system and discovered an annoyance and I'm not sure who to blame...'-}}

In WinXP, printing from Photoshop 7, I would File > Page Setup which, via the "Printer" button option allowed me to select which of my 2 printers I wanted to use--my HP2200D (default printer) or my Epson 4000--and then I could choose the appropriate paper size.

In Win 7, printing from Photoshop7--this may be the problem but I'm not sure--File > Page Setup no longer displays the "Printer" button (to the right of the "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons) so that now I have to select File > Print with Preview (or ctrl-p) > click on the Print button > click on the "Proceed" button in the the "Image is larger than the printable area..." message window from Photoshop > select the printer I want to use > select Properties and then finally, choose my paper size.

The process seemed much more straightfoward before and I'm not sure who to be annoyed with although I suspect Microsoft made the unilateral decision that everyone only has one printer so why would anyone need to choose another printer when choosing their paper size?

I guess I'll get used to it...'-}}
