Discovery Printers: Windows Setup
This document describes how to set up the Print Queue on Windows. NOTE: We encourage you to set up the print queue twice, once with the black and white printing by default settings and once with normal color settings so that it's easier for you to print in color only what you need to be colorful.
Reminder on CORE Printing
- Color: Color printing is very expensive. Use it sparingly and set your printer to default to black and white.
- Occupants: The printers are for building occupants only. Friends, other students, etc. are not permitted to use the printers.
- Research: Printers are for research-related materials only. Do not print non-research related items (e.g., school work).
- Essential: Printing should be kept to a minimum. We work in a green building and resource conservation is important.
