Change your default Microsoft XPS Document Writer.

 

-         control panel

-         - Hardware and sound

-         -Devices & Printers

Select Microsoft XPS Document Writer Icon.

-         right click the icon

-         - select “set as Default Printer”

-         - a green “check Mark” should be part of the printer icon.

pretty sure that is correct

-         Your Done

 

May need to un-install, re-install -or- repair MCX with new printer settings, not sure.

Good day,

Jim
