Creating multiple printer profiles in Windows 7

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


How can I create multiple printer profiles , one for color, one for drafts e.t.c.? I went to the Device and Printers section of my PC that runs Windows 7. I tried creating such profiles but they are not being displayed anywhere so maybe I did something wrong. Can you please tell me the correct way to do so? Also tell me how to dissociate, open and save those individual profiles so I may be able to use them wisely.

Creating multiple printer profiles in Windows 7


Hi !

After associating a color profile (or profiles) with a device, you can save and use the new color device association in a few different ways. Any changes you make affect the color settings for the current user account and the selected device only.

Open Color Management by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color Management.

Click the Devices tab.

Do one or more of the following:

1) To merge the current system default color settings that the device uses with the current set of profiles that you associated with the device, click Profiles, and then click Combine my settings with system defaults.

2) If you decide that you don’t want to use the color profiles that you associated with the device and want to use the system default color settings instead, click Profiles, and then click Reset my settings to the system defaults, or clear the Use my settings for this device check box.

3) To save the association between the selected device and the current set of profiles that it uses, click Profiles, and then click Save associations. In the File name box, type a name for the device association, and then click Save.
4) After saving the device association file, you can later load it to go back to those color settings for the selected device. For example, you might have saved different device association files for multiple projects and want to quickly switch color settings by loading a different device association file. Each device association file contains information about which color profile was the default when the file was saved.

5) To load a device association file so that the selected device uses the color settings specified in the association file, click Profiles, and then click Load associations. Locate and select the saved association file, and then click Open.

6) Click Close.
