Chapter 13. Printing and Faxing > Changing Printer Properties

Changing Printer Properties

Viewing printer properties gives you information about a printer's computer connection or network location, sharing options, related software drivers, color management options, graphics settings, installed fonts, and other advanced settings, such as spooling. Spooling, also known as background printing, is the process of storing a temporary copy of a file on the hard disk and then sending the file to the print device. Spooling allows you to continue working with the file as soon as it is stored on the disk instead of having to wait until the file is finished printing.

Change General Properties

Click the Start button, and then click Printers And Other Hardware (Home) or Printers And Faxes (Pro).

Select the printer icon you want to change.

Click Set Printer Properties.

Click the General tab.

If you want, change the printer name or location, and then type a comment.

Click OK.
