My choice for a default printer always changes from HP LaserJet PCL 5 to HP LaserJet series #1. After setting my preference for a default printer, the default automatically changes as noted above after the computer is rebooted. Even when I delete the series #1 option so that the PCL 5 printer is the only choice, the series #1 printer option re-appears and becomes the default when the computer is rebooted. I am making these printer configurations in the Printer and Hardware Devices window.
Thanks for any tips on how to make HP LaserJet PCL 5 my default printer in the Home Edition of Windows 7.
