My customers often deal with unexpected Windows behavior and this case is no different. This particular one is especially interesting because it is common in infrastructures that use the "User Environment Virtualization" (UE-V) extension. UE-V provides capture of user-customized Windows and application settings as well as storage on a centrally managed network file share. This case opened when a customer mentioned during an on-site engagement that they experienced issues that in some cases personalized settings of logged-on users did not apply to their work session.

While I sometimes long for the day when I no longer have to deal with unexpected Windows 10 behavior, there’s something rewarding about quickly finding a solution. In the process, I often end up with an idea for a blog post I can share with thousands five regular readers. A couple of weeks ago I helped a customer solve a particularly weird case: the "legacy" printer management (meaning that Windows will not manage the default printer) was enabled and yet - for some reason - the default printer kept changing for end-users to "Microsoft Print to PDF". Obviously something was broken so I had to investigate.

A few minutes with event viewer and PowerShell, however, and I not only determined the cause, but came up with a workaround.
