WinXp Pro and printer default settings (HP420C)

  IDT 16:55 07 Dec 2003

I have an old HP420C inkjet that I use for day to day printing. I also have a HP Photosmart1000 for the Photo quality prints.
The required drivers for the HP420C are an integral part of WinXp Pro. However, I would like to be able to change the default margins, page size (letter to A4), and Ink type (colour to black) as a basic permanent setting(s). The Photosmart is not a problem as it retains the settings last used.
Where as the HP420C reverts to the American defaults thus giving a large 4.66cm bottom margin and other margin settings, together with the Letter and colour cartridge (although a Black cartridge is fitted.
Every time I use this printer I have to ensure that I change ALL the settings to my requirements for each document that I print on the HP420C.
Can anyone help?
