How to Use a Fax Machine for a Printer

by UzoO ; Updated September 26, 2017

The fax machine can be used for more than just sending documents across your telephone line. Fax machines that are computer compatible can easily be used as a printer for your computer documents.

Connect your printer to your computer with a USB cable. You may be able to connect your fax machine to your computer with an Ethernet cord if your fax machine does not support USB connectivity.

Click on the "My Computer" icon. Select "Control Panel" from the options. Double-click on “Printers and Faxes.”

Click on the Add a printer” option. Follow the instruction wizard to install your fax machine as a printer.

Right-click on the fax icon that should now appear in the “Printers and faxes” folder. Select “Set as default printer,” and your fax machine is now prepared to print all of your computer documents.
