HOW TO MAKE ONE PRINTER YOUR DEFAULT PRINTER

In previous versions of Mac OS X, your default printer was whichever printer you used last. This kinda stunk, because if you used the same printer most every day, but changed to a different printer to print even just one document, the next time you'd go to print, that's the printer you got. Well, now you can designate one printer to always be your default printer, and even if you switch to another printer temporarily, the next time you come back, your default printer will be right there waiting for you. To assign a printer as your default, go under the Apple menu and choose System Preferences. Click on the Print & Fax icon, then click on the Selected Printer in the Print Dialog pop-up menu near the bottom of the dialog. Click on the printer you want as your default (just be sure not to choose Last Printer Used) and close the Print & Fax options. That's it!
