Type the path and filename for the output file.

Select what to do when the output file already exists in the target location.


Bypass Windows print driver

Select to send raw data (including printer control escape codes) directly to your printer. Output is sent to the printer immediately, instead of waiting for a whole page of information, and the Windows printing interface is bypassed.

If you're bypassing Windows printing to a PostScript printer, the results may not be what you expect. PostScript printers are controlled by PostScript commands, which are typically sent to the printer from a PostScript printer driver.


Click to connect to a shared network printer.

Auto formfeed

Select to add a form feed between each screen print.

Close printer manually
