    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. (y) 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. :mad: 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. :confused: :mad:

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

    Thanks in Advance! :)
