    Default printer keeps changing on its own.


    I have a Dymo LabelWriter 400 Turbo directly connected by USB and a HP LaserJet 4100DTN connected by Ethernet.

    The HP is the default printer but *every time* I print a label to the Dymo, Windows 10 automatically changes it to be the default printer that all other programs will print to. It does not need to do that because the Dymo program only prints to the Dymo printer. It does NOT just automatically print to whichever printer is the default so there is no need for Windows to 'help out' by switching the default printer.

    So I either have to go to printers and change default back to the HP or use the printing menu in other programs to specifically select the HP instead of just clicking print.

    That is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen in any version of Windows. I've switched it OFF. Shouldn't default to on in the first place.
