Selecting a different printer

From the Print dialog box (File > Print from the menu), you can select the printer where you want to send your print job.

To select a printer


  1. From the menu, click File > Print.
  2. On the Printer tab, select a printer in the Name field of the Printer section.

    All the printers you have installed on your computer appear in the list, with the default first. Selecting a printer here does not change the default printer for your computer; that is specified in your operating system software.

    Note: The Settings button links to operating system/printer manufacturer-provided printer options; refer to your printer or operating system documentation for more information. If you have no printer installed, consult Help in your operating system for instructions on installation.
  3. Click OK to print.
