HP LaserJet 4100 Series Printers - Printer Control Panel Menus

Introduction

Most routine printing tasks can be accomplished from the computer through the HP LaserJet 4100 series printer driver or available software. This is the most convenient way to control the printer, and will override the printer control panel settings. See the help files associated with the software, or for more information on accessing the printer driver, see the Access the Windows Printer Driver section in the printer's User Guide .

Printer settings can also be adjusted through the printer’s control panel. Use the control panel to access printer features not supported by the printer driver or software.
