It should be the same for Vista and XP:

Start-> Control Panel-> Printers and Faxes

There should be a check mark beside your default printer. If not, Right click the printer you want to use, and 'Set As Default Printer'.

Hope this helps!

Then try to print your documents.

Everytime I try to print something, my windows vista home premium notebook pc wants to save the document as a PDF document INSTEAD of printing to my HP deskjet D2530 what am I to do?


  1. go to "control panel"
  2. select "Devices and Printer"
  3. right click the printer you wish to print to
  4. click "set as default printer"
If this does not help,
try selecting "print as" or "print..."(notice the three dots)
these options should allow you to select the device you wish to print to before printing.
Select the printer you wish to print to in the drop down box at the upper portion of the window and select print

Hope this helps

HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer - printing any kind of document, from many formats (docs, pdf, photos) takes more than 15 minutes for one page to print. Tried restarting computer, printer,...


When you click to print something, you will get what's called the Print Dialogue box. Before clicking "OK", click the Properties button.26849353-6c28-4abb-ab9c-b5e445a1b08b.jpgThis will take you to a screen with some tabs. Click on the Paper/Quality tab. Somewhere in that window you will see some options for "Print Quality".

By default, it is probably set to "Normal". That's the middle setting. To save ink, you can set it to Fast Normal (better for ink saving) or Fast Draft (best for ink saving). This means the printer will use less ink to print the page. The final copy will look a little lighter but certainly still readable.

This option "fast draft" will print very fast and also save your ink.

My Konica Minolta magicolour 2500w won't print web pages any more


I believe it is a Windows problem and not a printer problem. Try to print from a different application, to see if it is working.

Prints from Manual Tray instead of Tray 4


Open a document. Select File>Page Setup and change the Source to Tray 4.

Or...

Try to print something. When the Print window comes up, select Preferences. On the Print/Quality tab look for the drop down menu labeled "Source is:" and change it to the tray you want. Click on the Save button.

I can't print in color


There are several possibilities here:

1) The default printer settings in your OS (operating system) were set to black only. If you are in windows, go to the windows control panel and choose the printers icon. Find your printer and modify the settings to allow color.

2) The application is overriding the default print settings. Look for something under the application's menu system like "File...Print Setup", or "File...Printer Settings" and change the print mode there to color.

3) The application's page setup is set to black or greyscale only. Look in the application's menu system for something like "File...Page Setup" or "Format...Page" and make sure it's not set to black only.

You will probably get better answers to your question by providing more info like what OS, or version of Windows you are using and what program you are trying to print from.

Won't print to printer - sends to a screen to save


Hi, I don't know if you've had an answer to this one yet, but when you ask your 'puter to print. The printing window that comes up, where you can choose number of copies etc, has a little tick box in the bottom (I think left hand) corner, that says print to file. If you uncheck the box, hopefully this will sort out your problem.

Hi,
Check to see if you have your printer installed correctly with vista drivers and also make sure that the printer is the default device for printing
