How do I set up my product for the fastest printing?

  • If you're printing from your computer, make sure your system meets the requirements. If you're printing a high-resolution image, you need more than the minimum requirements listed. You may also need to:
    • Clear space on your hard drive or run a defragmentation utility.
    • Close programs that you're not using.
    • Increase your system's memory.
    • Use a computer with a high-speed USB 2.0 port.
    For the fastest printing, try these tips:
    • Choose Black Ink Only in your printer settings if your document doesn't include color.
    • For Windows, choose Draft for the Quality Option.
    • For Macintosh, set the Quality/Speed slider to Speed.
    • If the printer is connected to a USB hub, disconnect unused USB devices.
    • Make sure Quiet Mode is not selected.
    • Make sure the paper Type or Media Type setting matches the paper you loaded.
