One PC using Two Printers

My wife's PC is currently connected to an HP Laserjet 1200 printer.
She wants to be able also to access her older HP 720 Inkjet machine.
I am a bit confused with the varied switches available.
Any ideas, please ?

You can have the Laserjet connected via it's USB port, and the 720 via it's parallel port - then you don't need a switch.

A two to one data switch will cost about ?9.00 in Maplins then you will need a couple of cables.

Many thanks for those.

I had forgotten that the Laserjet 1200 had a USB option. I have located it and will get the printers set up this w/e.

Much appreciated.
