Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing

Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing

Paperless office? Hardly. Computer users have felled entire forests to feed inexpensive, quality printers and preserve a paper trail “just in case”. Under Windows XP, the operating system, rather than individual programs, handles printing. When you print something in any application, you activate XP’s intermediary printing system, which accepts print jobs from programs and feeds them to the printer. This process, called background printing, lets you keep working in your program during printing.

Printer installation and configuration is easy. After hardware connection and setup, you can print individual documents with the default settings or override them for special purposes. In this chapter, I’ll discuss basic printer properties, printing tasks, and a few topics beyond the usual routine. I’ll also describe how to save paper by using XP to send and receive faxes without a fax machine.
