Selecting a Printer in Windows XP Labs

When working in Windows XP labs, it may be necessary to select and/or change printers depending on working conditions and usage needs. Knowing how to change printers is especially useful if a printer becomes low on toner or is not working correctly. If you need to map to a new printer, refer to Connecting to a Printer.

The following instructions are written generically for Windows XP and most Windows programs.

  1. Open the document you want to print

  2. From the File menu, select Print...
    The Print dialog box appears.

  3. From the Name pull-down list, select the printer for the lab you are working in
    NOTE: If the correct printer does not appear, refer to Connecting to a Printer to add the correct printer to this list.
    Print dialog box

  4. If necessary, make any other adjustments to the dialog box
