Default settings for printer

Q: Default settings for printer

Hello

I can't find a way to change the default settings in my HP Printer driver, after installing Windows7.

The usual settings have dissapeared.

The driver was installed automatically, when I plugged the printer in. I tried to download from the HP site but it wouldn't work.

I usually have default settings for all printouts.


Any suggestions?

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Default settings for printer

Here is what HP says about the drivers for this unit, which apparently is an "older" model:

"A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product.
With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available"

Based on what HP says you will not get all the features you used to get in older Operating Systems.

Good afternoon all...

I come humbly come to the super gurus here to respectfully request assistance with my "global paper size" in Windows XP-professional. Here is a description of the problem:

Here at the office, I received a "rolled down" Dell Optiplex 755 from a Chinese programmer. This machine is 2X as fast as my old box. The machine functions great in every way except in the printing process. For whatever reason, it thinks that all the networked and physically connected printers are defaulted to A4 sized paper. So every time I need to print a document, I have to manually change the paper size from A4 to Letter. I have gone through the registry and changed every occurrence of the "A4" to "Letter", to no avail, my system still thinks all the printers are defaulted to paper size A4.

Does any one have any "magic bullets" to help me correct this issue? Please lemme know something soon... (it's driving me nuts )

Thanks in Advance!

Hi All

I have just installed a new printer however when I go to print it wants to send a fax. So I have to manually change the setting to the printer every time I want to print.

Does anyone know how I change the default printer setting to my printer and not fax option on the printer.

Cheers
 

A:Default printer settings.

have you got two printer elements in the list - one for printer and one for fax
if so
click on the printer one you want to set
right click on it
and you should be able to
set as default printer

Hey all. I realize Windows 10 defaults to last printer used and you have to turn that off in settings. That solved my problem. However, since adding a new PC to my network and using a printer as a network printer, it seems to over ride the setting and keeps changing my default printer to the last used one. Its a tiny thermal printer so this is a huge pain .

Any advice? Again I've already set my default printer and switched the last used option to "off"

Also, the new PC is running on windows 10 but does not have the option to turn off last used printer as default.

I have an older Canon Pixma 6600. I have used it with Windows 10 to print photos. I changed the driver settings to Photo Paper Pro, highest quality output, etc. Now whenever I try to print anything, it defaults to the settings I used to print photos. Obviously this is not ideal.

Anybody know a way to change this?

I have the above mentioned printer. I installed it several months ago (Windows 7 system) and haven't used it since. It has a tri color cartridge and a black cartridge. When I originally installed it, I found a setting to allow it to print black and white only. I only wanted to print out a couple of documents while I was on the road. Now I want to print something color and for the life of me, I can't find anywhere in the help section how to take it off of the black and white printing only. I'm hoping someone might know or can tell me how to reset the printer to factory defaults; I can't find that either. Thank you in advance.

A:Windows 8 - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. [OK]

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I understand that Windows 10 has a new feature that automatically sets your effective default printer to the last device used (unless you explicitly turn OFF the "Let Windows manage my default printer" feature). I have turned this feature OFF (and checked that it is off a thousand times (slight exaggeration).

However Windows keeps moving my default printer to my DYMO label printer. Every other day when I do a Quick Print of a WORD document it prints to my DYMO label printer instead of the printer I have set as my default (Dell 2155 laser printer) -- and spits out multiple DYMO labels with the contents of my WORD doc.

I had experienced a similar problem on work PC when Windows 10 was first installed. Our IT folks searched for a solution for 2 weeks (and yes the new Windows feature was turned OFF) but after trying several fixes they gave up and did a clean re-install of Windows 10 which fixed the problem.

With this success at work with a clean install last weekend I bit the bullet and did a full clean C Drive format and full re-install of Windows 10 (including a re-format of my C drive) but the problem is back!

I wondered if Windows was missing my turned OFF feature however when I do a test of using the DYMO Printer it does not move the default printer to the DYMO -- so at the very least the problem is not caused everytime I print to the DYMO label printer. Also, when you turn ON the "Let Windows manage my default printer" the... Read more

I hooked up a printer to my grandmother's laptop. Everything installed fine and it is set to be the default printer. However, whenever we hit the print button in whatever program we're using an error message pops up and tells us that no default printer is selected. Furthermore, when I check the print dialog box the installed printer is selected in the drop down menu, but the print button in the same window refuses to light up. I'm guessing this might have to do with old drivers, but if not how do I get the printer to be recognized as default. The printer is a Lexmark x1270 and she's running Vista Home. Thanks all.

Hi Guys,

I'm getting quite frustrated with this issue and wondering if anyone has seen it, and able to resolve the issue. The issue is I have a network printer selected as the default in Windows 10. I have the option "Let Windows manage my default printer" turned off. At one point randomly, the default printer goes back to the Adobe PDF as the default.

Steps taken:

* I have checked the registry settings to ensure that the options "let Windows manage my default printer" is switched off. I can confirm this.
* Switched the default printer back to the network printer and performed a reboot. The network printer remains as the default. At some point of the day it goes back to Adobe PDF.
* Had a Microsoft support dude to look at the issue, but he has no idea either.

A few of my pilot users has also experience the same issue. Any ideas anyone?

Hi to all.

I am having an annoing problem with shared printers.

The user that share a printer lose the default printer in any case when another user print on this shared and it turn immediatly default printer only for the user that share the printer.

The printer shared is a label printer without network port and all was working very well before this , in my opinion, unusefull improve.

All user have the " not manage default option" , win 10 pro but seems that "default option" do not effect at all with shared printers.

It is clear that is a very bad working for the sharing printer user that have to check every time what the actual default printer.

any suggestion or is it a win 10 bug ?

I was setting up some printers on a computer that were connected to the network.

Add a Printer > Local Printer (uncheck the box immediately below) > Create a Port: Standard TCP/IP Port

That's just how we do it. When I set up the ports, however, I did it wrong. Instead of 10.10.1.10, I created a port on 10.10.10.1 which leaves me with more ports than printers. Can't find the setting that lets me go in there and delete the ports.

I *can* go into a printer's properties, select the port with a checkbox, and delete the port. But that also deletes (and makes me reinstall) the printer. What's the trick to getting just these ports deleted from my machine?

Hello Wan, and welcome to Vista Forums.

If this helps, this is what I found for this:






Valve Corporation uses .GCF games cache files both with its Steam computer game online content delivery platform (used for downloading computer games and content from the Internet), and with its Source 3D game engine (used to render realistic 3D graphics in their games). Valve Corporation also developed the game Half-life (along with its sequels) and the .GCF files is sometimes specifically associated with this game, although it is entirely possible that .GCF might be generated by any of Valve Corporation's games..



If you have Half-Life or another Valve brand game, then reinstalling the game to repair it without uninstalling it should fix the file association also.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

There are ways to restore defaults to individual applications or OS components, but I am not aware of any "global default restore" capability. The closest I know of is with XP where you can roll-back the system to a previous checkpoint if the right options are enabled. But, there is even a problem here... if you don't know what you're doing you can "un-do" legitimate changes to the system. You may have better luck by figuring out how to use "permissions" to restrict what the users can and cannot update.

I don't believe this can be done in WordPad.

However, in Works:
Change Works Default Font
Selecting the default font in Microsoft Works is a simple matter. Open the MS Works word processor and in the menu bar to Format | Font | Style. Click on Font and Style and a dialog box pops up. In the dialog box, choose your font by highlighting it, then highlight the font size that you prefer. Select a color if you choose or leave the color on auto.

Q. Every time I create a new document, I want it to follow a specific style, such as using default margin settings. How do I do this?

A. To specify custom settings that apply to each new document, you should create a blank document with those setting, and then save it as a template. To do this, use the instructions below:

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone can tell me the default settings in this area:

Tools > Internet options > Accessibility > formatting

...there are 3 boxes, and I cant remember whether they default to all unchecked, all checked, or some of both.

If any one can help that would be much appreciated.
Im on IE 6 XP Pro and SP1 (just an aside...last day for M$ support is 10-10-06)

TIA

one of my children changed all of my display settings individually,IE:colors,font and size.is there any way to reset windows default display settings?

A:Default Display Settings

In Desktop>Properties>Appearance, if you have the XP style selected, switch to a different color scheme, click apply, then go back to the original and apply again. That should set most if not all back to default. A system restore would also work; just pick the most recent date before they changed things.

Folks,

In Word 2000...

In the Envelope & Label dialog, I keep changing the default Font & Font Size to my own preference (for envelopes); & it keeps resetting back to the old settings the next time I open the app.

What gives?

Also...how can I rid myself of the Office Assistant. I hide him (it...whatever) every time it pops up, but the next time I open a blank document & begin typing...here it comes again.

Thanks,

mark4man

Next time you're in Env & Labels > Font dialog box, hit the Default button in the bottom left corner.

Try right-clicking him, Options, deselect Use the Office Assistant.

Ok so I have a Toshiba Satellite model A135-S7404 I no longer have the discs for this computer because I thought I would never have to use it (stupid me)
I really want to set it back to factory default settings but I have absolutely no idea how to do that every one tells me I have to have a disc to do it but like I said before I no longer have the discs so what do I do???
thanks
 

A:factory default settings???

Some pc's provide a restore partition (.IE,normal operating partition is c and the restore partition may be D)
Your user's manual will detail if you have a restore partition and if so,how to use it to get back to "out of box " condition.
If not,you might be able to go tho the Toshiba site and secure the restore discs for a fee.
