To change how the printer prints, click the “Printing Preferences” option in the Settings window or context menu. You’ll see a variety of options for controlling your prints here, and the settings you see will depend on the ones your printer supports. If your PC has the right operating system, the next step is to simply download and update your printer drivers. Again, you can use a tool like DriverSupport for a hassle-free way to automatically download and update all drivers for your PC at the same time, without having to check other areas. Normally, you must go into your printer’s preferences or properties to change various settings. However, this can be inconvenient when you have multiple groups of settings you want to toggle between. For example, perhaps you have a color printer on which you sometimes print high-quality color photos and sometimes print lower detail black and white documents.

The basics are pretty obvious: Make sure the printer is powered on and connected to your computer—or your Wi-Fi or Ethernet network, if it’s a network printer. Ensure the printer has enough paper and check if it has sufficient ink or toner. Ink and toner status may appear in the printer’s settings window, or you may have to view this information by reading a screen on the printer itself. You might also need to install printer drivers from your printer’s manufacturer.
