Try Start --> Programs --> MS DOS

or Start --> Run --> enter CMD

this will take you to a DOS screen

To print a file use the type command and pipe it to LPT1
e.g. type myfile.log > lpt1

WHY DOT MATRIX PRINTER NOT PRINTING DOS BASE PRINTS


It can't.
DOS printing need LPTx parallel port because DOS don't understand/support USB.

YOU can share the printer with windows printer driver, then
go to CMD prompt
Type
Net use lpt1 \\<computername>\<printersharename>
Then print DOS job to LPT1

HEY IM FINDING PRINT SCREEN BUTTON ON THS LAPTOP BUT I FAILED KINDLY HELP ME...................


Back in the days of DOS, the PrtScn key used to print the screen. But in all versions of Windows, this works differently, and the name of the key is now an anachronism. The key does *not* print the screen. PrtScrn captures the whole screen, and Alt-PrtScrn captures the active window.

Either one captures the image to the Windows clipboard. Once it's in the clipboard you can paste (Ctrl-V) it into any application that supports graphics (Windows Paint, other graphics programs, even your favorite word processor). You can edit or add to the image as you wish, then print it.
This ability to manipulate the image in a program before printing it is an improvement over the original DOS method of just printing it. But if you'd like that old facility back, there are several third-party freeware/shareware programs that can do this, such as PrintKey2000 at http://www.sharewarejunkies.com/00zwd2/printkey2000.htm

hope this helps

Extra Line when printing from a dos-based program


well..that EOJ line, is possibly farther down in the program settings, and is like a page break. the Dell is only doing what it's reading, so the answer is in the programming of the application. Perhaps you might query that company about how well that program interfaces with the Postscript quality printer you have?
