Windows 10: Printer driver settings default oddly
Printer driver settings default oddly
I have an older Canon Pixma 6600. I have used it with Windows 10 to print photos. I changed the driver settings to Photo Paper Pro, highest quality output, etc. Now whenever I try to print anything, it defaults to the settings I used to print photos. Obviously this is not ideal.
Anybody know a way to change this?
You could try going to Devices and printers in Control Panel and right clicking on your default printer and selecting Printer preferences. Here you can reset the defaults.
I guess my problem is that I wasn't in control panel, but in settings. It shows devices, but doesn't let you change default settings. I had to "Hey Cortana" to find the actual control panel. When in doubt, ask Cortana.
Or right-click the Start button and choose something to work with, Control Panel and Device Manager being just a couple.

Hey all. I realize Windows 10 defaults to last printer used and you have to turn that off in settings. That solved my problem. However, since adding a new PC to my network and using a printer as a network printer, it seems to over ride the...
