    Anyone know quickly how to print a test page after installing 2 ink tanks? I have forgotten how I did this and have not yet found it in manuals. A quick tip would be nice. Thank you.

    Are you asking about the Windows Test page or the Test Page to calibrate the print head(s)

    Previous ones were with XP and were named Windows XP Printer Test Page-looks like these were when I installed printer and may not be what I need or want anyway. Just a print to see how the new ink is functioning. I had thought they appeared when ink was installed. Maybe it is a nozzle check or something. What would you suggest?

    This would depend on the Window version.

    You could just find a colorful picture and print that?

    Have you checked the printer properties

    Have you checked the printer preferences

    To do either one right click on the printer and select one or the other.

    This is a Windows 7 Home Premium SP-1 and maybe I just saw I had a previous test page and thought I should make one. I will recheck all these things. Has been a long time since did any of this and do not print all that much. I guess I could just print a picture or something to see how it comes out. Thanks for the suggestions and sorry for the confusion.

    No problem do not worry about it.

    What I have also done some times is make different color boxes using Microsoft Paint.

    Rusty suggested Printer Properties. Since you have W7, to go Printer Properties - it's the same as XP.

    Right click on your printer. Go to Printer Properties, not Properties. There you will see the Print Test Page button.

    Hey ! That worked, Tony. Appreciations galore. Never knew how to do that. Print Test Page looks good.
