Using Printers at Vermont Law School


  • The VLS Network provides users with access to several network printers.
  • VLS promotes the use of double-sided printing whenever possible.
  • Never change any settings under the General, Details, Printer Settings, or Configuration tabs.
  • For best results, check printer settings in the Windows Printer Control Panel prior to sending a print job to the printer. Check to make sure that the settings are appropriate for the current print job. After the job has printed, CHANGE SETTINGS BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL SETTINGS.
