Windows Printer Driver
There's a lot less options here than we're used to seeing in a print driver because
this is a dedicated 4x6" photo printer. It only uses one size of paper, one type of
paper, there's only one paper source and it's only used to print photos.
Page two of the driver has all of the maintenance options on it. Here you can manually
start the Status Monitor to check ink levels, run a Nozzle Check and make a test print,
initiate a Head Cleaning or Print Head Alignment and use the Printer and Option
Information selection to verify settings or specify optional devices. The Speed and
Progress section has options for: High Speed Copies, Show Progress meter, Disable
Status Monitor or Always spool RAW datatype. You can also select what Monitoring
options you want to use.
If you check the Print Preview box on the first page of the driver, the printer will
display this preview window before printing. This lets you visually see what the final
print will look like so you can double-check your cropping or layout before wasting a
sheet of glossy photo paper.
The Status Monitor pops up whenever the printer is printing and shows a moving progress bar and a big "gas gauge" display of the remaining ink in the cartridge.
