Just got a new computer and connected the printer to it. When made my first test print, I had to choose my printer from a list in the window that pops up.

Choices:

Send to OneNote 2007
Microsoft XPS document writer
HP Deskjet 3500 series

My printer is the HP deskjet but it was not the default, pre-selected printer, so I had to click the drop-down box and select it, the click print. Since then, further printouts have automatically had it as the default so I can just click file-print-OK.

On my other user accounts for my family though, even after selecting the printer from the list and the printing, further prints mean you have to keep selecting it from the drop-down list each time. It's a little annoying for them to have to keep doing this, even though it's not much work, but it would just be a lot handier if the deskjet stayed selected each time anyway.

My question is: Is there any way to make the printer stay as the default when you click to print a page? Or will it eventually make itself the default through further printouts?

Many thanks if you can help.

Go to your Printers (from Control panel or from the Start button) - it will show you what have as printers (or software printers) - right click on your HP 3500 and select "default".

Done.
