Transfer Printer Settings
What are the steps to transfer printer settings?
As you use the system for your daily business needs, a printer is an essential component to be connected with the system. You can make many settings in the printer to make it more comfortable to use. But, when you buy a new system and connect the printer to the system, these printer settings may not be available. At the time, you need to configure these settings again. 'Windows Easy Transfer' or the 'File and Settings Transfer Wizard' are the best solution for these problems. This allows copying and then transferring all printer settings simply. This task does not need to locate the printer’s original driver disk at all. You can thus transfer settings like paper type and printer priority etc.

Then select 'Windows Easy Transfer' or 'File and Settings Transfer Wizard' located in the 'System Tools' of 'Start' menu. Select the external drive for copying settings. You can then give name, password etc. to the transfer settings and click the Save button. The printer settings are then copied to the drive. You need to safely remove the hardware from the system.
