Setting up a Printer default

Other than printing too much, the main over usage of our Printers is printing in colour and printing only on one side of the page.

You can set up your printer's default to stop this. Note: You can't set the default from the printer properties.

  • From the Start button, on the Task bar, choose Devices and Printers.
  • Right mouse click the printer.


  • Choose Printing Preferences (NOT Properties)


The following dialog box will open for our Xerox printers. Other printers will be different.


  • Set your preferences
  • Click OK.
  • This will now be the default.

Note: changing the printer Properties only lasts until you close the Print session.
