Desktop Faxing

Send faxes directly from your computer.


A neat faxing feature with the new copy machines is desktop faxing. Essentially, anything you can
print you can fax by sending your print job to a Fax printer. Unfortunately this feature only works on Windows computers so if you are using a Mac it will not be available.

See the following knowledge base article Desktop Faxing for instructions on how to setup the Fax printer and send faxes from your computer.
