You can save time and save paper when you fax directly from Adobe Reader. Instead of printing a document from Reader, taking it to the fax machine and faxing it, when you have a fax printer installed, you can print directly to the fax machine.

Step 1

Launch Adobe Acrobat. Select "File" and "Open," browse to where your document is stored, select the document and choose "Open."

Step 2

Click "File" and "Print..." Choose the Fax Printer from the printer selection box and select "Print."

Step 3

Complete the fax destination and cover sheet information according to the fax printer interface. For example, enter the recipient's name and fax number and a note to accompany the fax on the cover sheet. Choose "Print" to send the fax.
