Please follow the steps below:
To set or change the default printer
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then click Search.)
Enter Devices and Printers in the search box, and then tap or click Devices and Printers.
Press and hold or right-click the printer you want to use, and then tap or click Set as default printer.
If you have a laptop, tablet, or other mobile device, you can set a default printer for each network you use. Windows will remember which printer you've set as the default for each network.
