Electronics For You - - BUYER'S GUIDE -

For draft ver­sions of let­ters or pho­tos, use ‘draft’ mode, which saves ink and toner, and of­ten in­creases print­ing speeds as well. You may find that you are sat­is­fied with less than the high­estres­o­lu­tion mode even for fi­nal copies.

You can print work in progress in smaller size, or print sev­eral pages on the same page in order to save ink and pa­per.

Print a multi- page doc­u­ment as smaller as ‘thumb­nails’ with four or more pages on a sheet. This will help you to get a pre-fi­nal view of printed pages.

Pre­view be­fore print­ing. The print pre­view fea­ture of most soft­ware pro­grams lets you see what a print­out will look like so that you can avoid a false start. Print se­lec­tively. In­stead of print­ing web­pages, book­mark them or ‘Save As’ to a de­fault folder. If you do print them, use mono op­tion, not colour.

If you leave your printer on standby mode with­out us­ing it much, you will still run up a high elec­tric­ity bill. Inkjet print­ers use power even when they are switched off but plugged into the mains. So print­ers must be dis­con­nected when not in use.
