Have a certain printer set as default through printers and faxes. However, when using Word 2010 it shows the default printer as a different one. This is happening for many users. Is this a Word 2010 issue ?

Have rebooted machines and the default printer is as required but opening Word keeps showing as a different one, it is becoming very frustrating for users when printing,

Download the latest version of the printers drivers, then uninstall and reinstall the printer and the new drivers.

Try this,

Start --> Run -->  WinWord /a

Verify you are able access default printer or not.

Also cross verify, Printer driver is up to date.

I forgot to say that you can get your printers latest drivers from your printers manufactures site.
Google you printer model for driver updates on its site.
