HP9800 printer default settings

Do you know how to make this printer default to 11 x 17 each time I use the printer?  I have to go into properties and choose that paper size each time I print with it.  I use it to only print large documents.
If you know a way to make it default to 11 x 17 without having to go into properties, you would be a hero.

Usually this is done by choosing that tray as the default on the printer.

It can also often be done by going to the printer's properties in the Printers folder.  Click Start and go to Printers.  In the list of printers select your printer by right mouse clicking on it and choose Properties from the list.  Selecting the larger tray and paper size in Properties will often change the default.

Let me know if you need details or have a question.
