How to change the default paper size on your printer

You may sometimes need to permanently set the default paper size for a printer. New documents attached to that printer can then automatically pick up the selected paper size.

Note: If you have previously saved reports or layouts with a different paper size, these do not automatically update. You should edit the report or layout and save it with the new paper size.

All instructions in this article are written for the Windows 7 operating system. For help navigating in the Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating systems, please refer to article 29847.
