How can I change the default printer in Snagit 12?  It does not follow the system but always defaults to a different one.  It's a bit annoying when my system default printer is overridden by Snagit.

I struggle with that for a long time and all you have to do is go to the top of the list where it says default Windows printer and select that from that point on mine is always printed to whatever my default Windows printer was and never have to change it again

I'd like and answer to the same question. The default is always the fax rather than the multi function printer

I have the same problem.  My default printer is my MFP which has USB cable connect and WiFi.  The WiFi is offline, the USB connect is set as my default printer.

Everytime I print SnagIt selects the offline WiFi non default printer instead of the online USB, Windows default printer.

Solution please TechSmith!

Your solution is just going to your control panel of windows then the devices and printers...in there you will need to RIGHT  click on which printer you want as default then choose "set as default printer" and shazam...you're done.  A green checkmark should appear on the printer icon showing it is now the default one.

@techsmith.  Please READ my post and reply to what I wrote.

How many times did I say that Snagit was NOT using the printer defined as default in Windows?  Twice.

In addition, on Snagit, click File, Print, Print . . . and in the Drop down box for Select printer, choose "Default Windows printer."  This worked for me.
