By pacific_coast ·
Is it possible to set the number of pages printed by a Windows printer to default to first page only (one page) through registry etc. Thanks.

The short answer is : NO.

The long answer involves me describing the process of Windows printing and how documents RIP and are transferred to the printer and so on. Unfortunately, the explanation is longer than the 2,000 character limit.
Depending on the skill set you have available, macros and filters (depending on the backend OS) can be written to facilitate this.
