Hello,

Thank you for contacting JA, I am Cris and will assist you with your question.

First, go into control and remove program. Make sure that you remove all the lexmark software off your PC.

Next click the windows logo start button, click on printers. A list of printers will appear installed on the PC. Right click on the HP printer to make sure it's the default printer.


Let me know the outcome.

I can not delete the LEXMARK info because I use network Lexmark printers sometimes. The hardwired printer is the new HP. But I'll try your suggestion except eliminating the LEXMARK info. The new HP already shows as the default printer but IE still trys to go to the old LEXMARK first and then I can select the new HP Printer.

In IE when you go to print and the printer selection comes up. Right click on the HP printer and set as default through print screen.
