This is printer dependent.

With some printers, the driver lets you select the print order (first to last or last to first). With other printers you may be able to select face-up or face-down output trays to reverse the output order.

What printer are you using? Have you looked through the driver settings to see what's available?

In addition, some applications let you do it independent from the printer. For example, Acrobat Reader can print in reverse; with Microsoft Word you can specify which pages to print, so you can select something like 4,3,2,1 for the page range to print.

You are correct, Notepad does not have that option.

As for your printer, the C4183 is a usb-only printer, so I cannot install the driver without having the printer.

Check all the printing options when you go to print. There may be a button somewhere that lets you reverse the page order. However, it is possible that your driver does not have the option...

Thanks for the points, mb4ever

Did you find a driver setting to fix your problem, or did you accept that there is no solution with your printer?
