Stopping windows from managing your printers
  • Normally Windows10 will automatically set the printer you used most recently to be your default printer.  
  • For some people this can be annoying.  
  • Luckily you can turn this feature off and manage your default printer manually.  
  • First open settings by clicking the Start menu and selecting the Gear icon on the left, or you can press windows plus I on your keyboard to open it quickly. 
  • In settings, click devices. 
  • In devices, select printers and scanners in the sidebar menu in printers and scanners settings,  
  • Scroll down and uncheck the box beside let Windows manage my default printer.
