Hello my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to assist you with this. In your printer settings on the computer you can set that option. It would be easier if I log into your PC and show you. Let me know when you are ready.

Also please disregard any popups offering Premium Service Offer for Remote Support. That is an automated popup initiated by the web site. If I need to talk to you or do a remote assistance I'll let you know.
