Tips and Tricks – Hassle free printing


If you frequently have to reset the
Properties when you print, there’s a way to create a printer profile,
a “virtual printer” that will save your settings for a specific kind
of job. Go to the Control Panel and click on Printers and Faxes. Select
Add a printer, and you’ll activate the Add Printer Wizard. Select the
printer you wish to use, and in the right pane click on Select printer
properties. Give your virtual printer a relevant name, such as Letterhead
Draft or Top Quality Envelope. Click Printing Preferences | Advanced and
set the properties you want to save for that particular printer. The next
time you print, you’ll see the icon for a “Printer” with the appropriate
name in the drop-down menu. Select this as your printer, and it will print
according to your settings.
