cma,
Have you tried:
Click Start, Settings, Printers, right-click on your printer's icon and select Properties.
Click the Paper tab, desired size and then OK all the way out of the dialog boxes.
Regards,
Ralph

rmarotta is right. Setting the Printer Properties in the Printers window sets the defaults for all applications. Setting printer properties in individual apps (such as IE4.0) sets the printer properties for that one session of that one application.

Good answer, Ralph. But I'm not the questioner :-)

I believe the Apply button applies:)

Plug and play, no additional software required!

The ATEN UE3310 USB3.1 Gen1 Extender Cable allows users to extend the distance between the computer and USB devices up to 10 m (33 ft). The UE3310 is a high-quality, cost-effective solution for professional environments such as hospitals, factories and business facilities.

Sorry, Bud, the Apply button is only necessary if you want the computer to accept changes and keep the dialog box open. Clicking OK accepts the changes and closes the dialog box.

Are you printing to a multi tray printer? If so, the paper may be coming from the wrong tray. Check your source settings, it should be set to Auto Select. this will usually pick up the correct paper if the printer is correctly configured.
