The default setting for my printer is normal for the ink flow, but I would like for it to print in Draft Mode all the time without me having to change it every time I print. How can I change this so draft mode is the new default?

Go to Start>Settings>Printers. Right-click on the printer and select Properties from the menu. Click on the Advanced tab, then on the Printing Defaults button. In the next window, set your print mode and anything else you want as default settings.

Note that some applications may need to be restarted before the defaults take effect. And some applications save printer settings with the document, so those dociuments need to be re-saved with the new settings

Start>Settings>Printers, Right click on the printer you want to change and then select properties.

  In the 'setup' tab (or advanced tab) you will see options with radio buttons.

  Dtaft
  Normal
  Best.

 Right now the 'normal' button must be selected.
 select the 'Draft' button, and then click on apply and then on Ok.

   your default settings now must be draft always (until you change them once again)
