Faxing

If your computer has a modem installed, you can use it to send and receive faxes. Windows XP comes with fax software built in. (You’ll have to go through an extra step to install it, though—we’ll cover that shortly).

To send a fax from Windows XP, you just write a document using your favorite application, choose the Fax icon from the printer folder, and print. Windows asks for the appropriate fax phone number and makes the call—no paper is involved. You also can send scanned images. The fax service can even add a cover sheet to your document on the way out. To receive faxes, your modem can be set to answer calls. When a fax arrives, you can view its image onscreen or print it, or even have it printed automatically.
