If you’re always on the go, and you use a portable Windows 10 device, like laptop or Surface, you may need to use multiple printers to get the job done. And Windows 10 November Update brought one feature that will make accessing your default printer much easier.
In previous version of Windows 10 (and Windows in general), your default printer never changed, so if you needed to use a different printer for an one-time print, you had to re-select it as your default printer every time. Now, after the November Update for Windows 10, you can make Windows to use the last printer you’ve used as a default printer for each printing job, which will save you a lot of time, and help you if you’re in the hurry.
Namely, if you turn on the new Let Windows manage my default printer option, Windows will remember all printers you’ve recently used, so you can easily select the one you’re currently connected to, and start using it right away. It will also set the Last used label to the printer you’ve used most recently, and it will select it automatically as a default printer for your next printing job.
However if you’re using a desktop PC, and you’re using one single printer for your work all the time this option isn’t so meaningful to you, so you can turn it of from Settings, if you want. When you turn of this option, it will use only the printer you’ve set as default every time. But if your work requires you to use different printers, from different locations, this feature will definitely save you a lot of precious time, and make using multiple printers much easier.
