Chapter 13. Printing and Faxing > Specifying a Default Printer

Specifying a Default Printer

If your computer is connected to more than one printer, you can choose the default printer you want Windows to use to print your files unless you specify another one. The default printer is typically the printer that you use most often. When you start a print job without specifying a particular printer, the job is sent to the default printer. You can select a default printer in the Printers and Faxes window or when you set up a new printer. The default printer displays a black dot with a check mark in the printer icon.

Select a Default Printer

Click the Start button, and then click Printers And Other Hardware (Home) or Printers And Faxes (Pro).

Right-click the printer icon you want to set as the default, and then click Set As Default Printer.

Click the Close button.
