Ink cartridge levels
How do you check the ink levels in your printer? Win 98SE had a window that
popped up and showed you how much ink was in each cartridge.
I am using an Epson Stylus Color 600 printer and Widows Vista Home Premium.

Such a window is a function of the particular printer and its driver,
not of any version of Windows.

Also note that such a display is only an estimate anyway, not a real
measurement of the amount of ink left.

As Ken has said, each printer has different ways of displaying settings.
You could, however, try going to Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Pinters and
if yours show there, right-click and see if "Printer Preferences" is
displayed. Usually one of the tabs there will show ink levels.

> Thank you guys. That is one step forward. Now I know where to go to get the fix. It may be that the printer is too old to get that driver but I will check. Thanks again.
