Paper Tray Default

I have a relatively new Canon ImageclassMF743cdw.  I print from my personal and my work laptop.  Several days ago, I used the multifunction paper tray for the first time to print a legal size letter. Since then, I cannot get the printer to automatically print to the other tray (the one with 8 x11 paper).  It beeps, makes me select the paper tray and then it will print.  This makes me crazy since I hadn't changed any settings on the machine.  I have checked all the settings and Tray 1 (letter) is the default.  What am I missing?  Anyone else have this issue?  I want it to automatically print to Tray 1.

Re: Paper Tray Default

Hi MMMHouston.


First, verify that the paper size is set correctly for the drawer:


Next, ensure the Paper Source options match in the printer's driver (on the computer).  If there is a conflict, the settings on the computer will override the settings on the printer, which may cause the printer to require you to confirm paper settings manually.
