    Windows 10 keeps resetting the default printer

    Since moving to Windows 10 I now have to reset the default printer each day. A second copy of one of the other printers connected appears as if by magic and is selected as the default every time I start up the computer. This is a single computer not connected to a network.
    Any clues?

    Are the printers wired or wireless? Are the printers acting like they are being installed each time?

    Both printers are wired (USB). The printer which is being automatically selected as the default is the one that makes a second copy of itself (but only once)

    Have you tried deleting the printers and reinstalling them?
