How do I set default print settings when I print from Windows?

  • When you change your print settings from within a program, the changes apply only while you're printing at that time. If you want to select different settings to use in all your Windows programs, you can change the default print settings.
    1. Right-click the  icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar).
    2. Select Printer Settings. You see the printer settings window:
    3. Select the print settings you want to use as defaults in all your Windows programs. You can still change the default settings from within a program as needed.
