Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing

7. Printing and Faxing

Paperless-office propaganda notwithstanding, computer users have felled forests to feed printers and preserve paper trails. In Windows the operating system, rather than individual programs, handles printing. When you print something in any program, you activate Windows’ 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 while your documents print.

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 you’ll learn basic printer properties, printing tasks, and a few topics beyond the routine. I’ll also describe how to save paper by using your computer to send and receive faxes without a fax machine.
