File >> Print menu command switches style environment to specified by the 
"PrintingStyleEnvironment" FrontEnd option (by default it is "Printout"). So 
you need to modify the "Printout" entry in the "Style Environment Names" 
section of the Core.nb file, namely to change the default setting 
Magnification->0.8 to what you want.
In[1]:= Options[$FrontEnd, PrintingStyleEnvironment]
Out[1]= {PrintingStyleEnvironment -> "Printout"}
