Could Windows Virtual Desktop not save the default printer of a user session?
After every new login, the setting is wrong
I thank you for every useful tip

It depdend what you want. This is the same thing as RDS server.
The default printer can be managed at multiples levels.
1st Level: RDP Client Advanced settings
2nd Level: Server policies (GPO/Registery keys)
3rd Level: Active Directory user settings. (Does not work with AADDS, the setting is locked)
By default the RDP client will redirect the printer of the user then set it by default.
So at the end of the day it is a case by case basis.

Did anybody get to the bottom of this issue. We are facing the same issue default printer seems to change everytime a user logs in. It seems this is be caused by a delay in network printers appering so the default is set to a locally installed printer or Virtual printer.

@AnDGy I'd love to see WVD print the same way as RDP does. It doesn't. Frustrating trying to bring customers to the cloud this way. Have Microsoft fixed this yet? Can we print to a REAL printer from a WebClient session yet or are we still forced to accept 2 step printing still - printer to PDF (which does NOT by default go your the local PC/downloads folder) and then print the real printer from there?

I had this issue a few months ago, where printers deployed through Group Policy only appeared several seconds after users logged on, meaning their default printer would be change. Not that it probably helps, but the only way I could resolve it was to deploy the printers locally on the hosts (which is rubbish, but a least it worked).
The printers strangely also never showed when going into Devices and Printers in Control Panel, yet were all visiible when going to File > Print within an application! Is that something you're experiencing as well?

Have anyone tried the fix from the RDS enviroment:
Add the following registry key on the RD-Servers:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers\Client Side Rendering Print Provider
This will basically prevent the printers being removed each time the users log off/disconnect which will subsequently prevent the corruptions.

After some further research I found that setting this GPO fixed the issue for us. The default no longer was set after each login. Hope this helps!
