To print a printer test page, click Devices and Printers on the Start menu. Right-click on the printer you want to test and click Printer Properties. On the General tab, click Print Test Page.
You can print a test page when you first install a new printer or if you have the Print permission. Start by clicking the Start button on the lower left side of your computer screen. Click Printers and Faxes on the Start menu. You may also choose to go to the Control Panel and choose Printers and Other Hardware. Click on Printers and Faxes to display all the printers available on your computer.
Choose the printer that you want to test and right-click on it. Click on the Properties option. Go to the General tab and click on Print Test Page. The selected printer prints a test page. You can also open the printer properties on the Printers and Faxes page by clicking on a printer and selecting Set Printer Properties under the Printer Tasks on the left side of the window.
If the test document printed properly, click OK. If it did not print correctly, click Troubleshoot and open the printer troubleshooter to resolve the printer's problem.
