Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Setting Up for Faxing

Setting Up for Faxing

Faxing is a function that Microsoft has added to and taken out of Windows with practically every version. We're on the “added to” part of the cycle now: Windows XP has faxing capability built in, and it's quite nice. If your computer has a compatible modem installed, you can use it to send and receive faxes.

To send a fax from Windows XP, you can write a document using your favorite application, choose the Fax icon from the printer folder, and print. Or, you can use the Scanner and Camera Wizard to scan and fax hardcopy documents. In either case, Windows prompts you for the appropriate fax phone number and makes the call. 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.
