    default printer keeps changing in windows 10 despite changes

    Hi all,

    I have 2 pc's both running windows 10 and 1 of the pc's has 2 printers installed.

    The samung printer is default and a zebra thermal printers is the other printer.

    The problem i have is that the other network pc which access's the printers keeps changing the default printer.

    I have changed the "let windows manage my default printer" settings on both pc's but still it keeps changing the default printer.

    Any ideas please as doing my nut in !

    W10 has the ability to sync settings between devices and this is may be what is happening. In the screen below the Other Windows settings category does include printer settings so you could try turning it off and see if it makes a difference.
