Question about HP Photosmart 2575 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Am not computer saavy, have two computers and the HP into a "switcher" that then is hooked to single DSL line. Older computer has XP and the new one has Vista. New computer has two printers listed on printer section of Hardware and Sound on Control Panel - 1. Microsoft XPS Document Writer, printer status Ready, 2. HP Photosmart 2575 (set as default), printer status Offline. Printer works through old computer, will not print through new one - job spooled on queque. What the heck is the XPS Document Writer? Afraid to delete it not knowing what it is and how do I get the Photosmart Ready, i.e. change status from Offline. Please make explaination simple. Thank you for any suggestions.
Hey jonboy - You do not want to delete it. It is automatically installed with Vista. In simple terms, you know when you go to print something and it asks you questions like print all pages, print page 1, etc? Well XPS basically is there for so when you go to print, you have the option of printing to a file instead of paper. You've always had that option ( whether or not you knew it) but this is just a new way of doing it and that's why it's listed under printers. It's sort of like a virtual printer. I'll say no more about that and just hope you understood what I said. As far as the other printer, it's already selected as default, go back in where you found the printer status, right click on your Photosmart and click on use online. That should do the trick.
I hope you understood this stuff. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you still have a problem, DON'T RATE it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
