Print Settings Are Lost in MS PowerPoint 2013

When MS PowerPoint 2013 is installed on a computer, it is configured to use the most recent print settings that you configure while printing the presentations as a hard copy. This is the default configuration that has been added to the program in order to save your time that you would otherwise spend in configuring the print settings every time you need a printout of your presentation.

Although you can set your current settings as default and can enforce the program to use the same settings every time a printout is required, leaving the MS PowerPoint 2013 print settings to the default configuration is the ideal way to use the application.

When the default settings are tampered, you might be required to change the print settings every time you want a printout of the presentation. This unwanted configuration of MS PowerPoint 2013 might annoy you, and you might end up getting frustrated with the obnoxious behavior of the program.

The good news is that the things are still under control. You can change the modified settings back to the default without any administrative intervention, or becoming technically sound. All you need to do is that you need to change the configuration options that can be found under the ‘PowerPoint Options’ box.

Using the ‘PowerPoint Options’ box, you can even set static print settings that will be used every time a printout is needed but that configuration is not recommended. As mentioned above, if you make the printer settings static, you might require to change the settings every time you need a printout in the cases where custom print settings are required to get the prints in bulk.
