How do I print the free manual?
I have to assume that this manual you are wanting to print is a manual for a sewing machine that you've had for years or perhaps you just purchased it and the only information that came with it was a sheet that said "for a complete printable copy of the owner's manual/operating instructions" go to:.....email@example.com" or something similar, is that a fair guess? Well, even if it's not a sewing machine manual and you don't have any information pointing you to a user friendly website, have no fear, Google is here! I'm going to assume that you are at least somewhat familiar with computers and have some knowledge of how to search for or go to websites on the computer because you obviously found your way to this website and even figured out how to post a question. Not necessarily spelled out in blazingly obvious step-by-step instructions, I might ad! Anyway, if you did have a web address that directed you to this online document or "manual", then that's half the battle. Many free online instructions are uploaded to the internet in PDF format and it's probably a safe bet that your free manual is no exception to the rule, however some PDF documents are delivered to the web page all tied up nice and neat with a toolbar at the top of the first page like you would expect, thus it appears that there's no print command or printer icon anywhere which would lead you to believe that the document is certainly free and free for you to access, but why would they say it's printable if there's no print option showing here, right? Well you can use your keyboard to start the printing process. The print command on your keyboard is executed by pressing and holding down the key labeled Cntrl (bottom left on the keyboard) while at the same time you press the letter P key. Once you've pressed the P you can release both keys and in a few seconds the print command window should open up allowing you to choose/verify that all of the print "options" are set the way they should be. Verify that the "destination" shows as a known printer that belongs to you and is near your computer. Then take note of the number of pages in this document and make sure to have enough paper loaded in the printer and the printer is powered on. You can choose to print "All" pages or you can select the 2nd radio button and type in the page numbers that you want to print. For example if you want to print page 2, 3, 4 and 5 you would type 2-5 in the space provided. If you want to print 1, 3, 5, and 7 you would type 1, 3, 5, 7 and then click on the print button. If you are starting from scratch and don't know where to find the online manual (ie: there was no web address included or the machine is old and you only heard about a "free manual" from someone who mentioned that there should be a free manual, then that's where Google Search comes in. I have had really good luck finding manuals and or parts lists or schematics or even step-by-step how-to instructions (with pictures even) simply by typing in the Google search window something like "free printable owners manual for a Singer model S6372 sewing machine" which nearly always generates a page with dozens of options or "links" that lead to a PDF document that contains the entire manual free for me to print (or not) at my discretion. The only issue that I've ever had (and its not much of an issue if you know your keyboard commands) is that not all of these PDF documents have a toolbar at the top of the window that allows for easy execution of the printing. It can also make it difficult to save a document to your computer if you'd rather not print because there are too many pages. In that case you might want to learn to execute the copy and paste keyboard commands and copy the entire manual into a new blank word document. But that 's a lesson for another day. I hope I didn't insult you by assuming that you had no knowledge of the printing process, if this was too much information then I apologize, but I didn't want to make the wrong assumption either so I chose to give the most complete, clear and concise step-by-step instructions I could. I hope this was helpful. If you have more questions or just need me to clarify something please post another question or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can try to answer your questions directly. Or if you are so enclined, you can always "Ask Google!" He knows everything! Lol!
