Printing

Once printing is properly set up, your involvement in the printing process is minimal. Basically, you print from within your applications by choosing File, Print. Make any changes you want in the Print dialog box—you probably won't want to make any changes—then choose OK. Your document prints. Occasionally, you might have to use the Printer window to adjust a printer or queue setting, or to deal with a print failure. But mostly printing takes care of itself.

In Windows NT 4.0, there is a new method available for printing—drag-and-drop. You can drag an icon representing your file over to and drop it on top of an icon representing the printer. This signals Windows NT to open the document in the application, instruct the application to format the document for printing and send the print output to Windows, then close the application. You don't have to do all that manually as in previous releases.
