How do I set the default printer?
If you want to specify a printer you want to always print to, you'll need to set it as the default printer.

Go to Start, then Settings followed by Printers and Faxes. Right-click on the printer you wish to set as default and select "Set as Default Printer". A checkmark will appear on the printer icon.

Now, each time you print, the sytem will automatically choose that printer. Of course, you can always pick another available printer manually if you want.

You can also set a a newly installed printer as your default device. Most install wizards will ask you if you want it to be set that way.
