To choose a default printer, select the Start button and then Settings. Go to Devices > Printers & scanners > select a printer > Manage. Then select Set as default. If you have Let Windows manage my default printer selected, you'll need to deselect it before you can choose a default printer on your own.

In Windows 10, your default can be the printer you last used. To turn on this mode, open Start and select Settings > Devices > Printers & scanners. Select the checkbox beside Let Windows manage my default printer.

With a document open in Essential Forms, try to click File>Printer Setup. If Printer Setup is greyed out it might be one of the following issues: a permissions related issue or there is actually no default printer selected or there’s a problem with the printers and devices folder. Essential Forms simply makes a call to the already selected default printer.

Remote Essential Forms users getting No Default Printer Selected errors are out of our area of expertise. It’s recommended to contact your IT person.
