The Windows print driver has been updated and made more functional for the novice user.  The average user needs only to leave it on Automatic, pick the appropriate media type, size and orientation and the rest is done for you. The ink cartridge level indicators are now on the first page for quick reference.

Here's the predefined media types. What you choose here will automatically set the most optimum printing resolution (360, 720 or 1440 dpi).



You have three options for printing:   Automatic, PhotoEnhance or Custom.
