Windows 7: Multiple Printer Profiles; Deleting Unneeded Profiles

Multiple Printer Profiles; Deleting Unneeded Profiles

It has been my practice with prior versions of Windows OS's to set up multiple printer profiles, one for drafts, one for color, etc. "The Devices and Printers" section allows me to create such profiles, but does not show them individually. When I delete them in Windows, they are not deleted in the browser and WordPerfect. Advice would be welcome.

Hi
Welcome to Seven Forums

Following guide is from Microsoft:

To associate multiple color profiles to one device


  1. Open Color Management by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color Management.
  2. Click the Devices tab.
  3. From the Device list, select the color device that you want to associate with one or more color profiles.
  4. Select the Use my settings for this device check box, and then click Add.
  5. In the Associate Color Profile dialog box, do one or both of the following:
    • If you want to use a color profile that’s already installed on your computer, click the color profile in the list, and then click OK.
    • If you want to use a custom color profile that isn’t installed on your computer, click Browse, locate the custom color profile that you want to use, and then click Add.
      The selected color profile (or profiles) is now associated with the device and can be used by programs that use Windows Color Management to describe the color characteristics of that device. To use the newly associated color profile as the default color profile for the selected device, click Set as Default Profile.
  6. Click Close.

Note

Your picture or graphics editing program might also let you choose color profiles. When you make changes to the color settings in those programs, the settings are usually only used in that program.





To disassociate a color profile from a device


  1. Open Color Management by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color Management.
  2. Click the Devices tab.
  3. From the Device list, select the color device you want to disassociate from one or more color profiles.
  4. Select the Use my settings for this device check box, click the color profile that you want to disassociate from the selected device, and then click Remove.
    The selected color profile (or profiles) is no longer associated with the device and won't be used by programs that use Windows Color Management to describe the color characteristics of that device.
  5. Click Close.

Note

Your picture or graphics editing program might also let you choose color profiles. When you make changes to the color settings in those programs, the settings are usually only used in that program.






To save and use a device association


After associating a color profile (or profiles) with a device, you can save and use the new color device association in a few different ways. Any changes you make affect the color settings for the current user account and the selected device only.

  1. Open Color Management by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color Management.
  2. Click the Devices tab.
  3. Do one or more of the following:
    • To merge the current system default color settings that the device uses with the current set of profiles that you associated with the device, click Profiles, and then click Combine my settings with system defaults.
    • If you decide that you don’t want to use the color profiles that you associated with the device and want to use the system default color settings instead, click Profiles, and then click Reset my settings to the system defaults, or clear the Use my settings for this device check box.
    • To save the association between the selected device and the current set of profiles that it uses, click Profiles, and then click Save associations. In the File name box, type a name for the device association, and then click Save.
      After saving the device association file, you can later load it to go back to those color settings for the selected device. For example, you might have saved different device association files for multiple projects and want to quickly switch color settings by loading a different device association file. Each device association file contains information about which color profile was the default when the file was saved.
    • To load a device association file so that the selected device uses the color settings specified in the association file, click Profiles, and then click Load associations. Locate and select the saved association file, and then click Open.
  4. Click Close.

Elaboration of the Problem.

Thank you for the prompt reply. However, this ids not responsive to my problem, which I did not explain very well.

In prior versions of the OS I would install three "versions" of the same printer using the same driver. (This is done in the "devicees and printers" window, by "adding" a new printer.) Thus, one would be HP840Normal, another would be HP840Draft and the third would be HP840Color. Then, depending on my needs, I would select the appropriate printer from the word processing, browser or other software. Windows 7 does not let me do this. When I try, it gives me multiple printing "preferences" and does not let me delete them.

Thank you, whoever you are!!
