Change your Default Printer

A lot of people install a new printer and forget to uninstall the old one or they have two or more printers, but want a particular one to do most of the print jobs.  If you find that your print jobs do not print out automatically on the new printer, all you have to do is change the default printer.

  1. Click on the “Start” button
  2. Type “printers” in the “Start Search” box
  3. Click on “Printers” (above)
  4. Right-click on the printer of your choice
  5. Click “Set as Default Printer”

Now every time you print a document, that is the printer that will do the job.
