How to Change the Default Printer

Going to show you how to change the default printer in Windows.

The default printer is the printer that all of your print jobs will go to as soon as you click the print button. To change it let’s go to start and select the control panel. Scroll down to the to about the middle area, until you find printers and faxes. Double click on it As you can see, I have multiple printers installed on this computer.

The one that has the check mark on it is the current default printer. To change the default printer find the printer that you would like the default to go to, right click on that printer, and just say set as default printer. As you can see, that check mark is moved from this printer to this printer. Any documents we print will now automatically go to this printer.
