I am new here myself but here's a link:

An excerpt...
For most people setting the printer for NT Emacs is simple.
You leave it alone and Emacs prints to the default printer.
(setq printer-name "LPT1:")

Put this or something like it into your .emacs file. Although PRN is the
default printer for Windows (it always points to your default printer),
you are better off selecting a specific printer such as LPT1.

You can also set your printer to a network shared printer:
(setq printer-name "//server/deskjet")

All that talk of PRN and LTP1 seems a little dated but looks
like it will work.
