Stop the Default Printer Changing in Windows 10

No Comments

Microsoft in their infinite wisdom believe that they know better than you when it comes to what printer you want to use. By default, Windows 10 will change your default printer based on the last printer you used. Very annoying!

To stop the default printer changing in Windows 10:

  1. Click the Start menu
  2. Type “Settings” and click on the “Settings” app
  3. Select “Devices”
  4. Under “Let Windows manage my default printer” click on the sliding bar to move it to the “Off” position
  5. Close the Devices window

This should stop Windows from changing your default printer.
