Default Duplicate HP Printers on same machine?

How can I get 2-5 of the same printers to print on one or more machines without it creating a copy every time it is connected via USB?

You can probably re-name each printer, like prnt-1 and prnt-2. You'll also need to make a label for each printer you re-name. Then install the printer drivers on each pc, if all the printers are the same, you'll only need to install one driver. When doing a print job, you'll still need to select a printer and make that one printer (such as prnt-2) the default printer to print from. As far as I know, you can not print to two printers at the same time
