    How do I set the default settings on my printer using Word 2007. I want them to be paper size A4 and fast draft, but everytime I change them and restart the computer, they are set at letter size and normal speed. Thanks.

    Word uses the default printer so I think you need to set the default settings in the printer setup to what you want. (This will affect everything you send to the printer.)

    You could perhaps duplicate the printer, change it's default printing settings to what you want, and run a macro to select it as the printer to use when you start Word.

    So that's my question. How do I set the default settings in my printer. I'm using HP Deskjet 3920 but I can't see a way to change the default settings in the printer window.

    The suggestion in your second paragraph is way over my head. I would need simple, step by step instructions on how to accomplish that.

    Try:

    Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes...

    Right-Click the printer, select Properties...

    Select Printing Preferences, and set up how you want to print by default.

    That did it. I'm glad you know all this stuff.

    The only change is since I'm using Vista, it has to be Start > control panel> Printers ...
    Right-Click the printer, select Printing Preferences, and set up how you want to print by default.

    Thanks.
