 WHY did Microsoft decide to make Windows 10 have no default printer unless you choose to change settings? Sure, if someone wants to print something they'll always want to use the same printer as last time, it's obvious... which is why I nearly tried to send a 3-page letter to a 25mm label printer last night. Grrrrrrr......

I can sort of understand this from the point of view of most people only having one printer, but this is Windows 10 pro, aimed at businesses, where there might be dozens of printers on a network. And I'm a home user with three printers; laser, an A3 inkjet, and the label printer.

It's easily fixed, in the end, once you go on line and find out how to do it, but it seems weird that that's the default.
