Retain DEFAULT printer please!

Some time ago I used my son's HP printer with my laptop while on holiday and installed his HP software for that purpose. On return home I can't get the laptop to recognise my own Epson printer as the default. Can someone point me to the right screen? Thanks in anticipation.
OS is Vista Home Premium.

If you have your Epson printer set as default in your printers folder and that doesn't work for you then I would suggest you uninstall the HP software if it is now no longer needed.

Go into the Printers folder ("Control Panel > Printers"), right click your own printer and select "Set as Default".

Thanks to both of you! That's it sorted. Was initially hesitant to uninstall HP software as I might have needed it again down south so other option has been used. Thanks again.
