Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Setting Print and Fax Settings

Setting Print and Fax Settings

Using your Macintosh to print and fax is an obvious extension of the normal, everyday computing process. You write and create documents, and send them to paper; you take a photograph using a digital camera and send it to a photo-quality printer; and you have a document, and you need to fax it to a co-worker or friend. The Panther operating system has several components that allow you to modify the aspects of printing and faxing; however, the initial setup is performed in the Print & Fax Utility (), located within System Preferences. It's the first step to making your Macintosh a truly awesome printing and faxing machine.

Set Print Settings

Click the Apple menu, click System Preferences, and then click the Print & Fax icon (or click the System Preferences icon in the Dock).

Click the Printing tab.

Click Set Up Printers to access the Printer Setup Utility.

If necessary, select the In Menu check box for your printer.

Click the Close button.

Click the Printer pop-up, and then select a default printer to appear first in the Print dialogs of all your applications.

Click the Paper Size pop-up, and then select a paper size to be used as a default in the Print dialogs of all your applications.

Select the Share My Printers With Other Computers check box to allow your printers to be shared across a network.

Click the Close button.
