I'm running XP pro, with several user accounts, of which I am the administrator. Does anyone know of a way to restrict users from using the USB printer? If I could just put a password on it, it would stop my housemates from printing behind my back!
Any advice appreciated.

Yes actually. Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on the printer icon> properties> 'security' tab. You can set your permissions/denials in there.

Won't let me log in with other users now - some kind of security rights problem - and takes me back to login screen. quite odd.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
