    I am setting my default printer to a local printer. After a while it changes back to another printer that is for my other home office. There is no server. I just have 2 differnet printers (HP 7410, 7310) in two diffent locations. I want the 7310 to be the default all the time.
    It changed in about 3 - 5 mins.
    Any thoughts?

    I changed it in the Printers and Fax window.
    I sat there for the 3-5 mins and kept hitting F5 and soon it changed before my eyes.
