How do I change the Default Print Settings in Microsoft Paint ?
then you probably have the same infuriating problem as many other people.
MS paint always wants to print your image on two pages with the picture centred right in the middle, just like in this image:

The pain is having to go to print settings every time, and change to something like this:
All it then needs is an APPLY button to click. But in their wisdom, Microsoft never bothered to give us that option.
After much searching, I am no further into finding a permanent solution to change the default MS Paint print setting to a single page format, by resetting the scaling from 100% to “fit to 1 x 1 page”.
If anyone has a fix for this, PLEASE let us know 🙂
