Reset Printer Settings
What is the need to reset printer settings?
A printer is a hardware device which helps to take the hard copy of the document file stored on the computer. A printer driver is a software program that helps to control the printer device. You need to have a print server which is compatible with both wireless network and printer. Once your printer has been added to the computer, you can change some of its settings like location, printer model, and any installable options using Printer Setup Utility. To install printer drivers, insert the set-up disk in your CD/DVD drive. Then right-click the 'setup' file, select 'Properties' and click the 'Compatibility' tab. Run this program in compatibility mode and also try to run this program in as administrator. Press 'Apply', and then 'OK'. For the working of printer device, it is necessary to install a proper driver.
