Controlling print jobs

In the Microsoft Windows operating system, three settings affect how the printer driver tries to pull paper when you send a print job. The Source, Type, and Size settings appear in the Page Setup, Print, or Print Properties dialog boxes in most software programs. If you do not change these settings, the printer automatically selects a tray using the default printer settings.


To avoid affecting print jobs of other users, make printer setup changes through the software application or the printer driver whenever possible. Printer setup changes made through the control panel become default settings for subsequent print jobs. Settings selected in the software or the printer driver override settings selected in the control panel.
