Microsoft recently released their semi-annual major update to the Windows 10 operating system. The update is known as CU 1803 and can take a substantial amount of time to install, depending on the speed of your Internet connection. It may also restart your computer several times, so be patient when installing!
You can always chck your current version of Window 10 by clicking on the Start button, clicking on the “gear icon” for Settings, clicking System in the upper left corner of the screen and then selecting About, at the bottom of the menu on the left. You should see something similar to this:
If you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 and have more than one printer connected to your PC, you may have discovered that your system’s default printer automatically switches to the last printer you used. This annoying behavior defeats the whole point of having a “default” printer so here’s how you can turn off this bizarre behavior:
- Start by opening the Settings app. Click the Start button, click All Apps, and scroll down the alphabetical list until you come to Settings and then click it.
- Once the Settings app is open, click on the item labeled “Devices, Bluetooth, printers, mouse”
- When the Devices window opens, scroll down the left-hand pane, past the list of Printers and Scanners, until you see a section titled “Let Windows manage my default printer.” Click the button so that it reads “Off” and then close the Devices window.
- Now you can select your default printer in the normal manner and that setting will stay until YOU decide to change!
