Changing your default printer

Most likely you can choose which type of printer to print your file(s) on. Your computing service may provide colour printers, plotters and laser printers as well as simple line printers. Each printer will have its own unique name.

When you print a file it is sent to the default printer that is defined by the value of your PRINTER environment variable. This is set up for you when you are given your account.

To change your default printer, change the value of this environment variable to the name of the printer that you want to use.
