I use an HP LaserJet P1006 at my job. It is directly connected to my computer with a usb cord. Aside from that printer, we have other printers on our network that I can print to.


I can print to the other printers on most occasions. However, when I open up excel or Outlook it will only print to my HP printer. I wasn't too happy about this, but I could live with it.


Then I updated my Adobe Reader and it would only alow me to print to my HP printer, which, for my job, was not ok.


I have tried going into Printers and Devices and manually selecting another printer to be my defalt, but it does not register. I have even uninstalled the HP printer and tried to select another printer and it would not allow me to do so.


Currently I have reinstalled the HP printer and have wound up where I began.

In Excel, Outlook, and the updated Adobe I cannot print to any other printer except the HP Laserjet P1006


I don't care that the HP is my defalt printer, but I would like the option to print to other printers.

Is there anything I can do?


Thank you!
