Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a Generic / Text Only printer using the Generic / Text Only driver.
  2. Go to the printer properties for the newly created printer, go to preferences and Advanced and change the Paper Size to any Envelope size paper or you can create your custom paper size.
  3. Set the newly created printer as default.
  4. Make sure all the IE are closed first. Open the IE.
  5. Print any website from the IE, and chose other printer Laserjet or whatever printer, the page size still in Envelope size or your custom paper size. It will not change back to other printer’s default paper size.
    I had tested on different computers and different version of IE and they all have the same issue.
