If you are one of those tired of selecting the printer every time you want to print something, you are in the right place. You no longer have to select the printer whenever you print something from your browser or a PDF document or anywhere else. Windows have a feature that allows you to select your preferred printer. As soon as you choose a printer that you need to be your default in printing documents and anything you want, Windows will no longer have doubt in choosing which device to use for printing your documents or files.
Especially if you are working somewhere or running a company that requires frequent printing of documents, this could be extremely useful. In this article, we are going to list the steps required to print something on your Windows 10 PC without being asked for choosing the printer. Here we go.
