  1. Printer output in windows 10


    I am running two desktops (windows 10), both out-putting to the same HP printer wirelessly. One sends colour prints, the other only monochrome. I have compared the printer properties and the printing preferences, they are both the same with one exception, in printing preferences there is an option to choose color or black & white on the good output machine but not on the problem machine. I cannot find anywhere to switch this option on. Any ideas anyone please?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
