We have a new printer and it automatically defaults all jobs to black and white and double sided.  I've gone into printer preferences and changed the deault settings to the printer to color and one sided.  Also, in Advanced settings, I disabled the printing optimization.  It seems that everything works except files that come from another office.  However, when I receive files from another location and go to File - - > Print and change to a different printer and then change it back, the settings I want are there.  Obvuiusly, I would rahter it just default than have to go through this.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I assume you are printing Word docs. Word saves the printer settings with the document, and I don't think there is any way around it.
