Set the default printer

If you have more than one printer available, you can select which will be your default printer. You may want to pick the printer you use most often.

You need administrative privileges on the system to set the default printer.

  1. Click on the User Menu on the bottom left-hand corner of your screen, then click on Settings.

  2. Click Printers.

  3. Select your desired default printer from the list of available printers.

  4. Click the Unlock button in the top-right corner and enter your password.

  5. Select the Default option.

When choosing from the list of available printers, you can filter the printer search results by specifying a name or location of the printer (for example, 1st floor or entrance).

The search results filtering is available only in the dialog for adding new printers.

When you print in an application, the default printer is automatically used, unless you choose a different printer for that specific output.
