Windows Operating Systems. The bidirectional communication capability allows the driver to automatically detect and update the installed options both at install time and upon user request. This allows the driver to adapt to the various capabilities of our different printers, but unlike other universal print drivers, the network traffic is minimal. With only one package to manage, testing and internal certification of print drivers is simplified by the use of the Lexmark Universal Printer Driver packages. Time spent on installation, both on servers and workstations, is greatly reduced, and hard drive space formerly occupied by many product-specific drivers is now diminished significantly. The Lexmark Universal Printer Driver packages use the same graphic user interface as the product-specific drivers the users are accustomed to, and now all queues will share that same interface, decreasing calls to the help desk. Users can create and save profiles for their most frequently used settings, or use profiles that were created for them by IT. Administrators can use the Lexmark Universal Printer Driver packages to encourage their organization’s environmental policies. The default queue settings can be modified to include duplex, multi-page printing (N-up), toner darkness, and other resource-saving measures.
