Changing printer settings

I am using the IE browser control to print HTML reports from a C#
application. I do not know of any way to pass print settings to the control
(such as landscape orientation), and cannot prompt the user every time
because many reports are printed in sequence.

Therefore, I need to manipulate the default printer's persistent settings
(as displayed in Control Panel) using C# code. I know how to obtain the name
of the default printer, but how can I configure it?

P.
