...... you are using the default settings as in Control Panel Printers?

Any changes when you come to print, will remain until that file is closed or another one selected.

It might be that you have 2 sets of drivers for your printer?

I have. One set came with the installation CD and the other was "found by Windows."

I think everything is set right - it has worked for a long time until recently. I have 2 epson printers plus a PDF printer. All disappear from time to time leaving the printer folder empty until I reboot, then they all reappear.
