Teacher PCs

Working With Applications

File Saving

To save files at Grant:

  1. Double Click on the "Save" icon. 
  2. Find the "Shared" drive or S:\ drive. 
  3. Double-click on your teacher's folder.
  4. Name your file with your name and the assignment.

 

Printing

All systems are configured to print to the closest printer.  For classrooms, it is the classroom printer.  For the lab, it is the lab printers.  Other printers are configured on the machines so if printer doesn't work, you can print to another printer. 

 

NOTE:  There are a few applications that only print to the "default" printer.  That means you must set the printer before using the application (Renaissance Place, TuxPaint).

  • Check your default printer:  (Start-->Printers and Faxes).  Default printer has a black checkmark.
  • To change your printers,  click (Start-->Printers and Faxes).  Right click on the printer  you wish to make the default and select "Set as Default Printer".  A black (or sometimes a green checkmark) should now be next to the printer you just selected.  Repeat if it doesn't take the first time.
