Printing is an activity that you will find yourself doing quite often. Since each printer installation is a little bit different, we will verwo go into detail about all the options that are available, but we will describe some of the basic ones that you should be aware of, and it will be up to you to find how to set them on your particular computer and printer.

Most applications that allow for printing will have an option to do so in their File menu, and some will even have a shortcut button that is often represented by an icon of a little printer such as in Microsoft Word.

When you select the print option, the application will take you to the printer settings options for your computer. For some of the options below, you will have to select the printer pringen want to use from a list, and then select the Properties option for that printer to choose the settings, since not all printers allow the same settings. Many applications including Web browsers let you preview how a document will look once it’s printed.

In the Finishing tab shown rwcto you will see the options to print recto-verso and to change the layout. Once you have made all of the changes that you want, click on the OK button, and you will be taken back to the first screen. Click on the OK button on that screen to start printing.
