The following are some tips for working with the printer software.
How do I gain access to the printer features?
The printer features are available in the printer driver. Some features such as custom paper sizes and
page orientation might also be available in the program you are using to create a file. Change settings
in the program, if possible, because changes that are made in the program override changes that are
made in the printer driver.
How do I get the latest printing software?
When you want to check for and install upgrades to the printing software, you can download drivers
from the World Wide Web or HP's file transfer protocol (FTP) servers.
To download drivers
Go to http://www.hp.com/support/clj1600. Click the support & drivers block.
The Web page for the drivers might be in English, but you can download the drivers themselves
