Changing the accepted answer to this, as it actually fixes the problem, rather than bypasses it. Thanks!

comment How do I reset the time on my computer without turning it on?
OK, so how many more of you have tried this now? Feels like a good night for field testing.

For the record though... While this controls which screen pop ups for CMD-P, it still leaves us at the mercy of Chrome's preview screen when, for instance, a Web link opens the print dialog. A proper setting within Google Chrome would still be much preferred.

Check Lauri Ranta's comment above. All better now!

THAT'S what I was hoping for! I'd tried to change the shortcut myself earlier, but apparently hadn't typed the name of the command correctly. Thanks for spelling it out. I'm changing my accepted answer to this one, and my mood to happy. Also, charge your keyboard quick! ;)

Sure, it's just one more click, but after the 100th time in a day, the blood does start to boil. A simple "Use system default" checkbox would make everything right. Heck, even Adobe figured that one out.

The default OS X print dialog allows the use of PDF Services which make life crazy easy: In two clicks, I can send Web pages to iBooks for later reading on my iPad (See hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20100626154406535 for examples), for instance. I have several such services set up to allow me to print Web pages as PDFs to dropbox, iTunes, FTP sites, etc... but thanks to Google's "trust us, you want this slow preview" feature, I find myself staring at an unfamiliar interface and thinking about how much I hate my browser more often than not.

comment How to disable/destroy forever Chrome's “print preview” option?
That's what I figured. I know it's a little thing, but when every other part of the OS uses CMD-P to call up a usable print dialog, it seems absurd that a single app should force its users to forget everything it knows about the way things work and learn another combination. I guess I'm old and set in my ways, but this one "feature" is enough to lead me to abandon Chrome in favor of the WebKit nightlies.
