Subject: Automatically Prints to Last Printer

Today I noticed that when I choose to print the wrapper, it automatically prints to the last printer I used rather than giving me a choice (or printing to the default printer).

No big deal, but it would be more convenient if it didn't work that way.

I believe that is somethign you need to change with your printer settings. If you right click on your printer icon of the one you want to use, the properties should come up. There should be an option to set it as the default printer.

That is your browser or Adobe Reader or printer settings. It has nothing to do with this particular web site.

If you want to choose amongst more than one printer, go to customize your toolbar and add the icon for "Print ..."  The three dots are called an ellipse and it means there are more choices to be made.  When you click on this icon you will have the choice between printers and other options such as number of copies.  If you use the plain Print icon it will automatically print one copy to your default printer or the last printer used if you haven't set a default printer.

However, once the icon is in your toolbar, the two look alike so you need to make sure you've added the one you want and removed the one you don't want.

OK, thanks for the info.  It's not printing to my default printer, and I'm using the Print Wrapper button.

But now that I know it doesn't happen to everyone, I know how to solve it.
