  • Right click on file and select convert to PDF ( adobe)
  • Once converted, either send to device through correct print driver or save to usb( preferred)
  • Print file or insert USB

Why is it taking so long to print?

  • It may print slowly if there are lots of images in your document. Images take longer than simple text to print.
