2

Select Virtual Machine > Settings.

In the Settings window, select Printer.

Drag the slider to ON.

Select the default printer for this virtual machine.

Description

Match the default printer on the Mac

Print jobs from this virtual machine go to the printer set as default on your Mac.

Allow a different default printer

Print jobs from this virtual machine go to the printer you set as default using the virtual machine’s operating system preferences. For example, you set the printer default by selecting Start > Printers and Faxes in a Windows XP virtual machine.
