At present I have to click on the sequence --

Start/settings/printers/canonBJC7000/printer/properties

to get to where I can alter paper type, color balance, and much else of the Canon's facilities.  How do I create a shortcut directly to this area ?    dan.

Copy the printer icon to your desktop and then right click on it directly.

Do Start/Settings/Printers and right click on the printer. Select Create Short cut. You'll get an alert dialog saying that it can't create the shortcut here, do you want it on your desktop. Click on [Yes] and you're done!

So far - so good.  I now got the printer icon on the desktop, saving me start/settings/printers, but I really want to go further.  To get to the tab on my printer's properties sheet wherein I can make the desired alterations I still have to click
on the desktop icon just created, then on printer/properties
to get to where I wanted.  My picture editing progs have printer props buttons which get me straight to the above "properties" sheet, so it can be done --- but how ?

A desktop shortcut is only going to take you so far. You "progs" can go further because they're *PROGRAMS* and are firing the events for you. You can write a small piece of VB to do this, but if you want to run at the desktop level there's not much more you can do. About the only thing left is to put it in your startup area so the icon fires automatically. You can leave the printer minimized on your taskbar. Either that or leave your application program up & minimized with that page hot.
