Are you using these for a Word program?

If so, see here: Create or edit a fax cover page in Word

I'm using them for anything I fax from the computer. Manytime I use just the remarks section of the cover sheet.

Here are several you can download into your "C:/......documents/fax/personal coverpages folder"

This is the main page of the ones below:
Templates - Microsoft Office

Personal fax cover sheet - Templates - Microsoft Office

Fax cover sheet (Professional design) - Templates - Microsoft Office

Fax Cover pages : how use them ?


reading the thread because the default fax cover pages included in the Windows 7 fax software do not correspond to what I need, I do not understand how to use .doc or .dot documents in that fax program.

If I try to open the .cov cover pages provided I cannot ( using either Word or Paint )

If I save the .dot / .doc into the fax coverpages folder ( where I have saved an elemnetary one created from scratch using the built in fax cover editor), then the windows 7 fax sofware doesn't "see" them

TIA for helping

Hi! PivertMe, welcome to 7F :)

Make sure they are saved to this default folder:
C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

You might even have to add a folder to Templates, called Fax Templates to that line:
C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Fax Templates

But then you will have to make sure your fax program can see them by making an association.

From/Fax w/out cover sheet

I choose not to use a cover sheet for most of my Faxes; its a waste of paper for the precipitant. On the top of the fax, there's the time, date, but the "from" and "fax" are blank (see image). I've filled in my sender info, but that only applies when using a cover sheet.

Is there any way to get my sender info on the top of the page?

Thanks in advance.
