Do not set default client printer to be default printer in a session

This policy setting allows you to specify whether the client default printer is automatically set as the default printer in a session on an RD Session Host server. By default Remote Desktop Services automatically designates the client default printer as the default printer in a session on an RD Session Host server. You can use this policy setting to override this behavior. If you enable this policy setting the default printer is the printer specified on the remote computer. If you disable this policy setting the RD Session Host server automatically maps the client default printer and sets it as the default printer upon connection. If you do not configure this policy setting the default printer is not specified at the Group Policy level.
