Windows 10 default printer trouble

I had a client ask me why their default printer keeps changing. I discovered a new feature of Windows 10 automatically sets the default printer to the last user printer.

  1. Click on the start button and type in “Printers & Scanners”
  2. Click on Printers and Scanners
  3. Turn off the setting “Let Windows manage my default printer”
