Windows 7: How to change Default picture print size away from full-page

How to change Default picture print size away from full-page

We print pictures regularly from Windows Photo viewer, to stick in a photo album (yes, we're that old fashoned).

The default print size is "full page photo"

We always want to print the pictures at 9x13cm. Is there any way to get windows to default to this?

Thanks in advance!

You have to go to

Options > Printer Properties > Page Setup tab

All the way on the bottom of the roll-down there is 'Custom' - 9x13 does not seem to be a standard size.

Hello Andrew,

Named Size: 9x13cm
Real Size: 89x127mm or 3.5x5 inches (4 pictures per page).
To print four different pictures per page at one time.
Here’s how I do it.
Start ORB > Pictures > Open Album > Hold down Control key, then click on four different pictures.
Click Print
Print picture window appears.
In the right side column, click on 3.5 x 5 in.
Click Print.
