Windows 7: Default settings for printer

Default settings for printer

Hello

I can't find a way to change the default settings in my HP Printer driver, after installing Windows7.

The usual settings have dissapeared.

The driver was installed automatically, when I plugged the printer in. I tried to download from the HP site but it wouldn't work.

I usually have default settings for all printouts.


Any suggestions?

Thanks

Here is what HP says about the drivers for this unit, which apparently is an "older" model:

"A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product.
With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available"

Based on what HP says you will not get all the features you used to get in older Operating Systems.

Since your printer is dated, my suggestion, when you have to replace your ink, buy a new printer. Does not cost much more than the ink and you get the ink besides.

It would be a pity if I had to replace my nice old printer, which works great, just to be able to change my settings for it.

Thanks for the tips.

I realised that I set printer Options by right clicking the driver, not in the print options... my mistake..

thanks
