Specs: Windows 10
I am tired of changing from save to print every time I want to print. How do I make print the default mode in this dialog. I have a Canon 922. I do not need to save everything. I just want to print. I know how to change from to print, I just want to stop wasting my time waited for things to load.

Try an alternative browsers (such as Firefox or Chrome) and let us know if it happens there. If it is only on one browser tell us which one it is.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is there not an icon on your menu bar are for Word etc. which allows you click there and thus print directly?

I have one on my browser (Safari) and also Word etc.

Does your browser have the usual printer icon along the menu bar at the top?

Click on the Start button and type; devices and printers. Then select the Printers and... option that comes up on the menu. Right click on your printer and select: Print Preferences. There you should have a check box "Print to File", uncheck it there. Apply. OK. Close all and try again.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You haven't said if there is (or isn't) a printer icon on the browser menu bar? And if there is one - what happens if you use that to print?

We need to know what browser this happens on or if it happens on all browsers.

I was referring to the print to file NOT in the print options after the print was selected BUT the print to file box under the printer icon itself in devices and printers. One if for that print and the other is for the entire system as defaults.

The reason you are being asked for what browsers it happens with and if it happens with more than one is that it might be buried in the browsers settings or an error in the browser that maybe resettable.
So, please answer that question also.

In Firefox it may not be there by default; but it can be added to the menu bar.

Open firefox and go to View on the top menu bar. Select customise (Toolbar).

Locate printer icon on display which opens and drag it tot he top of the display - into a an area that is ;ikely called something like Bookmarks Tool bar items.

Click on Done (bottom right of display) and the printer icon ought to appear alognside Most Visited, Getting Started etc. icons. Possibly at far left end.

I'm presuming Internet Explorer or the win-10 equivalent has similar options; but as I don't use win-10 I'm not familiar with all of its foibles etc.

See if you can set that up and then test print that way and advise us of results?
