How do I get to printer settings?
Select Start > Settings . Go to Devices > Printers & scanners > select a printer > Manage.
If you are attempting to access Printer Properties or Printing Preferences and those options are not available, you may need to restart the print spooler. Follow these steps to restart the print spooler: Press and hold the Windows key and press R. In the Run box, type services.
On the control panel, open the Setup, Service, or Settings menu. Select Preferences, Printer Maintenance, or Tools. Select Web Services, Printer Update, or LaserJet Update. If prompted, follow the instructions to turn on Web Services.
Click [Start] - [All apps] - [Windows Tools] - [Control Panel] - [Hardware and Sound] - [Devices and Printers].
Click File > Print. On the right, you'll see a preview of your file. On the left, you'll see the Print button and the configurable Settings.
To display the Print dialog box, click (Down arrow) of the Print button or the Start Printing button in the Preview screen, and select Check Settings and Print....
Every printer has a control panel somewhere on its body. The fancy printers have LCD control panels that display text, or preview and select photos for printing. Less fancy printers may have a control panel of only a couple of buttons.
Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor is open, click Start, and then choose your printer. If your printer is not listed, turn it on and click Retry. If there is a connection problem, follow the instructions in the tool.
Windows Update might find an updated version of your printer driver. To use it: Select Start , then select Settings > Windows Update. Select Check for updates.
Printer manufacturers release firmware updates periodically, approximately every few months. Whether you choose to download a firmware update is up to you.
Why won't my HP printer connect to my Wi-Fi?
Restart the printer and the computer or mobile device to clear possible error conditions. Restore Wi-Fi setup mode. Most printers with a touchscreen display or menu: Open the Wireless or Setup menu, select Network setup or Settings, and then select Restore Network Settings.
Turn the product on while you press and hold the Resume button for 10-20 seconds. The Attention light turns on. Release the Resume button. The Attention and Ready lights cycle while the product restores factory defaults.
Resetting the printer stops printing and clears the current print job received from the active interface. You may want to reset the printer when there is a problem with the print job itself and the printer cannot print successfully.
Click File > Print. Under Settings, choose the color printing option, and any other options you want, and click the Print button.
After you choose File > Print, the Print dialog appears so you can select a printer and set print options. The Print dialog shows different options depending on your printer and the app you're using.
The Print dialog box lets the user select options for a particular print job. For example, the user can specify the printer to use, the range of pages to print, and the number of copies.
On HP printers, a "cold reset" causes the printer to return to its factory default settings, which among other things, causes it to try and retrieve its configuration information from a BOOTP server. This is how SAP printers and Athena printers should receive their configuration information.
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click Printers & Scanners in the sidebar. (You may need to scroll down.) Control-click the printer in the Printers list on the right, then choose Reset Printing System.
If you can't find the print option, check the app's User Guide or Help section. Not all apps support AirPrint. Tap No Printer Selected and choose an AirPrint-enabled printer. Select the number of copies you want and other options, such as which pages you want to print.
To change these settings, choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click Printers & Scanners in the sidebar.
Why can't my Mac communicate with my printer?
In some cases, outdated printer software may cause communication issues with Macs. To update printer software, open the App Store, and select Updates. Check if there's any printer software update available, and click on Update. You may also need to reinstall the printer driver.
To troubleshoot your connections, disconnect every cable between the printer and computer, then reconnect, making sure that the connections are tight. Each Mac model has several USB ports; if your printer still doesn't work after reconnecting the cables, try another USB port.
Go to Settings > Privacy & Security. Tap a hardware feature, such as Camera, Bluetooth, Local Network, or Microphone.
Check the printer connection status: Make sure the wireless signal is on, and the printer is connected to the same network as your computer or mobile device. If your printer has a light next to a Wireless icon or button , make sure the light is on. If it is off or blinks, the printer is disconnected from the network.
Open the App Switcher, then tap Print Center. The badge on the icon shows how many documents are in the queue. To cancel a print job, select it in Print Center, then tap Cancel Printing.
