How to set default printer in Windows 10

Please use this Knowledge-base Article if you wish to learn how to set your default printer in Windows 10.

Step 1: Open the start menu and select the icon that looks like a gear, if you hover over it for a second it will tell you that it is Settings.
Step 2: In the new settings windows select Devices.
Step 3: On the left hand side of the devices windows select Printers & Scanners.
Step 4: In printers & scanners scroll down to the bottom of the windows and make sure that this option is turned off: Let Windows manage my default printer.
Step 5: Scroll back up to find the printer that you wish to make default and then select that printer and select Manage.
Step 6: Now select the Set as default option and you have now selected your default printer, if you wish to change it from this current printer just select a different printer and select the same Set as default option.

I have also attached screenshots of each step in order for further explanation and assistance.
