Hi

I have found such setting in the windows registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\PRINT\BACKGROUND

I have not played around with this myself but this would be good place to start looking into scripting this setting. Once you have figured out which keys to change you could use std windows objects to read/write to the registry. Hope this helps.

Regards
Marnus
