Printers

The printer settings in Windows typically concern installing printer drivers and managing print jobs. The drivers and the software that comes with your printer will provide more settings and features specific to your hardware (see Figure 5-6).

Figure 5-6. Use the Device Settings tab in your printer’s Properties sheet to fine-tune your printing preferences
