MF642cdw, how do I save the settings?

Evening all,

Just purchased this week, I've been successful in setting it up and would like to save the settings to a file of some type, so if I do have issues/problems, it can easily be reset to a known setting.

Looked thru the manual, FAQ's, and this forum....  anyone know if the above can be done????

Appreciate it.  Thanks!

Typically you can set and save multiple profiles as a preset.  How might depend on the OS you are using. 


The article linked here is not for your specific printer, but explains the process. 


Changing defaults is also possible by making changes on the printer itself, but its probably easier to do in the Properties of the driver instead, which also allows you revert easily if you don't get the results you expect.
