Connect to your printer via Wi-Fi
Epson Print and Scan is a utility tool that connects Epson all-in-one printers with Wi-Fi enabled devices. It is vital that you own an Epson all-in-one printer as the app depends on the printer’s wireless functionality to send a printing job. The printer can either be an Inkjet or Laser printer, but its Wi-Fi connectivity is non-negotiable. Together, the printer and your PC can send updates and complete tasks wirelessly.
How do I connect my printer via WiFi?
It is necessary to have your PC or tablet and printer linked to the same Wi-Fi network before you download Epson Print and Scan. This is essential for the app to recognize and show the printer in the drop-down list. If the printer does not appear after you've linked all machines to the Internet, simply press the Refresh button to help the app resume its scan.
The program provides a simple and clear interface composed of drop-down menus, slim lines and a blue-and-white color scheme. At the top of the app, you are asked to pick between Printer and Scanner. The choices below can vary based on what you want. If you choose ‘Printer,’ you will be faced with the following configurations: ‘Paper Format’, ‘Media Form,’ ‘Colour,’ 'Shape,' ‘Print Quality,’ and ‘Paper Source.’
The Scanner configuration choices, on the other hand, are ‘Scanning Size,’ ‘Resolution,’ and 'Colour.' Many of these options are seen on the left side of the app. The right side is devoted to the preview of the printout. Similar to its updates, the ‘Printer’ provides more options when reading the text. Two icons are seen above the preview: rotate and the folder. The rotate button will switch your paper from either portrait or landscape mode.
How do I scan documents into my computer?
The Epson Print and Scan app is a necessary tool to avail yourself of the printer series’ convenient services. With this, you can access a settings menu specifically for your printer, wherein you can choose if you want to print or to scan. You can set the model of your printer and set the parameters of your printing.
You can choose what paper size you want, what type of paper you are using, and what color will your document be in. You can also set the layout of your document, the quality of the print, and your paper source. For scanning, on the other hand, you can choose the paper size, the resolution, and the color.
The app also adds in a touch-enhanced user interface feature if you have touchscreen devices. However, the app doesn’t perform as well as it should, and you will often be confused about what’s happening to your printing and scanning process. One particular problem is that the app doesn’t inform you of where it saves your scanned files. For your reference, it goes to ‘Photos' instead of the ‘Scans’ folder.
Practical application for Epson users
The Epson Print and Scan software help owners of Epson printers to optimize the functionality of their machines. The UI is not as extensive as the USB linked printer but provides all the requisite modifications. Its user interface, on the other hand, is monochromatic and two-dimensional, making it easy to use and finish the job fast.
