Why is my computer printing so slow (Part 2)?

So you've re-installed the correct print driver for your Savin multifunction. If you haven't, check Why is My Computer Printing So Slow (Part1) for tips. But why does it still print slow? These steps may be what you need to get your device printing up to speed. Windows 10 tries to do as much to make your computing life as easy as possible. But on occasion may not set things up in the way that works best. Besides auto selecting a print driver for your device, it may set up a printing port that isn't the best option.  Windows 10 often installs your Savin as a WSD (Web Services Device) which can be problematic. If the port is set as WSD try adding a new TCP/IP port using these steps.  In the search bar in Windows 10, search for printers and you’ll see Printers and Scanners. Click that and you’ll see all your installed printers. Find your Savin multifunction in the list, click it then choose Manage. Now click on Printer Properties and go to the Ports tab. Find the port with your multifunction device attached. If the port type is WSD, click the Add Port button below. In the next window, select Standard TCP/IP Port and click the New Port button which will start the Add Port Wizard.  Before we go any further, you'll need to find the IP Address of your multifunction device. Go to your multifunction device and press the User Tools button. Next select System Settings in the touch screen. Next touch the Interface tab and look for the IPv4 Configuration button. Touch that and you see the device's IP Address. It will be in the format of (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX). A typical IP address would be 192.168.1.200 (ignore any leading zeros).  We're almost done! Now back to your new computer.   Where we left off was at the Add Port Wizard, so click next and enter the IP Address in the top box. Don't worry about the bottom box, it will auto-fill. Click Next and the Wizard will find your printer and set the port up. Click Finish in that window, then click Close in the Printer Port window. Finally click Apply then Close in the Printer Properties window.  You've added a new port!  One thing to note. Even after correcting the port settings, Windows 10 could still re-add the printer. The way to prevent this is to choose the printer you use as your default printer. Right click on it and click on Set as Default Printer.  Windows will give you a pop-up that asks if you are sure you want to do this and not have Windows manage your printers. Choose yes that you do want to make the decision. This will put a green check mark on your default printer and prevent Windows from trying to think it knows best. As always, contact us if you have any questions or need help getting through these steps. And if this Quick Tip worked for you, we would love to hear your feedback!

Why is my computer

printing so slow (Part 2)? 

If you've already re-installed the correct print driver for your Savin multifunction but it still seems to be printing slow, these steps may be what you need to get your device printing up to speed. Windows 10 tries to do as much to make your computing life as easy as possible but on occasion may not set things up in the way that works best. In addition to auto selecting a print driver for your device, it may also set up a printing port that may not be the best option.  Windows 10 often installs your Savin as a WSD (Web Services Device) which can be problematic. If the port is set as WSD try adding a new TCP/IP port using these steps.  In Cortana, that’s the built-in assistant for Windows 10, search for printers and you’ll see Printers and Scanners. Click that and you’ll be shown all your installed printers. Find your Savin multifunction in the list, click it, then choose manage. From there, click on Printer Properties then go to the Ports tab and find the port with your multifunction device attached. If the port type is WSD, click the Add Port just below. In the new window that pops up, select Standard TCP/IP Port and click the New Port button which will start the Add Port Wizard.  Before we go any further, you'll need to find the IP Address of your multifunction device. This number can be found by going to the device, pressing the User Tools button and selecting System Settings in the touch screen. Next touch the Interface tab and look for the IPv4 Configuration button. Touch that and you see the device's IP Address. It will be in the format of (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX). A typical IP address would be 192.168.1.200 (ignore any leading zeros).  We're almost done! Now back to your new computer   Where we left off was at the Add Port Wizard, so click next and enter the IP Address in the top box. Don't worry about the bottom box, it will auto-fill. Click Next and the Wizard will find your printer and set the port up. Click Finish in that window, then click Close in the Printer Port window, and finally click Apply then Close in the Printer Properties window.  You've added a new port!  One additional note: Even though you have installed the correct driver, and set it up to print directly to the IP address, Windows 10 will still think it can make your system run smoother by adding the printer again using the WSD Port. The way to prevent this is to choose whichever printer you use as your default printer.  Right click on it and click on Set as Default Printer.  Windows will probably give you a pop-up that asks if you are sure you want to do this and not have Windows manage your printers.  Choose yes that you do want to make the decision.  This will put a green check mark on your default printer and prevent Windows from trying to think it knows best.
