Default Print to File

x-no-archive: yes

The only way I know is to "copy" it to the printer with a DOS command.
Do a search on "Print to File" on Google groups and you'll see the exact
command.
It'll look something like this:
copy output.prn lpt1

There is check box option on the "print" page to "Print to file". When I
check this option, the output is sent to a file rather than to the
printer. The file appears to contain the character string that would
have been sent to the printer if "Print to file" box had not been checked.

Is there any way to send that file to the printer so that the original
page will be printed?

Regards, Hawkeye

Default

The command is "copy/b yourfile prn" where yourfile is the filename to be
printed. Omit the quotes.
The "/b" switch in necesary after the copy command.

1 Go to "Run" and execute "command" to get a DOS-like prompt.
2 Then run the above command.
3 Type "exit" to return to Win2K.

Best
