    Which one of the following would not be used to install a printer?

    • A.

      Devices and Printers - Add a network Printer

    • B.

      Attach printer to USB port

    • C.

      Devices and Printers - Add a local printer

    • D.

      Check screen resolution

    Correct Answer
    D. Check screen resolution
    Explanation
    The option "Check screen resolution" would not be used to install a printer because screen resolution is related to the display settings of a computer monitor and has no direct connection to printer installation. To install a printer, one would typically use options such as "Devices and Printers - Add a network Printer" to add a printer connected to a network, "Attach printer to USB port" to connect a printer via USB, or "Devices and Printers - Add a local printer" to install a printer connected directly to the computer.

    Explanation
    To set the default printer, the routine of selecting a printer from the "Devices and Printers" menu and then choosing the option to "Set as Default Printer" should be used. This option allows the user to specifically select the desired printer and designate it as the default one for all print jobs.

    C. Cancel
    Explanation
    The option "Cancel" will stop a document from printing and remove it from the print queue. This option is used when a user wants to completely halt the printing process and discard the document that is being printed. By selecting "Cancel," the user effectively cancels the print job, preventing any further printing and removing the document from the print queue.

    Correct Answer
    B. Select a printer from Devices and Printers and set the printer as the default printer.
    Explanation
    Selecting a printer from Devices and Printers and setting it as the default printer will change the default printer. This means that any print command will automatically be sent to this selected printer unless specified otherwise. The other options mentioned in the question do not involve changing the default printer.

    Which one of the following statements is TRUE about print jobs? Select ...

    • A.

      Pause to temporarily halt printing a document

    • B.

      Restart to continue to print a document that has been paused

    • C.

      Resume to stop printing a document in a print queue

    • D.

      Reorder to continue to print a document that has been paused

    Correct Answer
    A. Pause to temporarily halt printing a document
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Pause to temporarily halt printing a document". This statement is true because when you pause a print job, it temporarily stops the printing process without canceling or deleting the job. This allows you to temporarily halt the printing of a document and resume it later without losing any progress.
