10934: Printing a Test Page from Windows

Printing Generally

How can I print a test page from my computer (not through Drake Tax)?

Windows 11:.

  1. On the Start menu, select Control Panel.
  2. Select view devices and printers.
  3. Select Printers and scanners.
  4. Select the printer that needs to be tested from the list of all printers. 
  5. Click Print test page.
  6. Once the page has printed, click OK.

Windows 10:

  1. On the Start menu, click on Settings
  2. Select Devices > Printers & Scanners.
  3. Select your printer, and then click on the Manage button.
  4. On the left hand side, click Print Test Page.

Windows 7:

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. In Category view, select View Devices and Printers, or in Icon view, select Devices and Printers.
  3. Right-click your printer icon, and select from the drop list Printer Properties.
  4. On the General tab, click Print Test Page.

If you are experiencing a printing problem in Drake Tax, a successfully printed test page suggests that the problem may be the printer setup inside Drake Tax rather than the printer itself.

Note: If you have not resolved a printer issue after exhausting printer settings and Drake Software settings, install the latest printer driver available for your operating system. Refer to your printer instruction or vendor website for more information. If the issue persists, contact Drake Support, (828) 524-8020.
