By default, they are suitable for the majority of users: mostly the paper size is DIN A4 on standard paper 80 g/m² in portrait mode in standard quality, color printing (if possible) and no reversed order.

Who should change the print settings?

Change the print settings permanently

Important: the settings in the normal print menu are only valid for the current printout. Permanently, the settings can only be changed as follows:

  1. go to the Settings of Windows 10 (e.g. via Windows key + I).
  2. select Devices (Bluetooth, Printer, Mouse).
  3. select Printers & Scanners on the left side. 4. Click on the relevant printer and then select Manage. 5. Select Print Settings on the left side. 6. Select the settings that you want to apply by default from now on and confirm with OK.

Now the print settings are permanently changed.
