    Windows 10 and printers

    They have done it again.

    I now go to print something and find they have now mandated borderless printing as a default. This does two things; it assumes the borderless capability of my printer which means the edges don't appear properly and it sends ink all over the inside of the printer. If I want to print a batch of images (maps, for example), I have to open them individually, go to print, more options and disable borderless printing for each one.

    Does anyone know how I might regain control over my own computer and make borderless printing off by default?

    I can only imagine this is to try and push me into buying a new printer as they gruadually make a perfectly servicable bit of hardware more and more difficult to use without taking a great big HAMMER TO THE WRETCHED THING.

    Is this a Windows change or something HP/Canon etc have done in their infinite wisdom. Assuming the former the simple answer is install Linux.

    Mine seems normal...
    I do print through the HP app though, as my printer is one o' them newfangled wireless LAN ones.

    Sometimes with Windows 10 you need to run things with "Run as administrator" for settings to be saved even if you're on an administrator account.

    I needed to do this for printing with Lightroom when custom settings I had made in the printer settings looked like they had saved but wouldn't be there on the next startup.
