Accessing Xerox printer features (Windows)

Accessing Xerox printing features, properties, preferences, or options in Windows. For information for Mac, refer to the "Accessing Xerox printer features (Mac)" article.

Objective

This document details how to access the Xerox printing options in Windows to change the defaults to choose the features appropriate for your print job. The features available to the end user are dependent on the model of Xerox printer and any finisher it has installed. If you would like to change your printing options, you will need to access the Xerox printing options within the print dialogue window. The printer model used as an example here is a Xerox Altalink C8055 with a finisher that has the stapling feature. There are other finishers available in the Xerox multifunction printers that provide features like hole punch and booklet printing as well. To change your printing options, such as single/double sided, stapling, and color, you will need to access the Printer Properties from within the application that you are using. In this example, MS Word is being used.
