To choose a separator page

To set up separator pages, you must have the Manage Printers permission, which is one of several printer permissions. For more information, click Related Topics.

  1. Open Printers and Faxes.

  2. Right-click the icon for the printer you are using, and then click properties.

  3. On the Advanced tab, click Separator Page.

  4. Click Browse and find your systemroot\System32 folder.

  5. Specify one of the separator page files that Windows provides in the System32 folder:

    • Pcl.sep, which prints a page after switching the printer to PCL printing.

    • Sysprint.sep, which prints a page after switching the printer to PostScript printing.

    • Pscript.sep, which does not print a page after switching the printer to Postscript printing.


  • To open Printers and Faxes, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
