Setting up Label Printers in Windows.

A guide on setting up label printers in Windows 10 and 11.

When using a label printer, the default printer settings may not communicate with Acctivate. If you have your printer default setup on the label printer and Acctivate is not picking up those settings, here are the steps to troubleshoot the problem.

  1. In the windows search bar enter in Printers & Scanners'
  2. Locate the label printer and click it.
  3. On the Printer page, click "Printer Properties"
  4. Click on the Advanced tab.
  5. Set your default print settings and click Apply.
    1. Things to consider:
      1. Driver
      2. Stock Sizes
  6. Click on the Printer Settings tab.
  7. Check the box that reads “Always use driver settings” and click Apply.

This should fix the default printer settings when printing to the label printer.
