Ink cartridge levels

G

How do you check the ink levels in your printer? Win 98SE had a window that
popped up and showed you how much ink was in each cartridge.
I am using an Epson Stylus Color 600 printer and Widows Vista Home Premium.

Such a window is a function of the particular printer and its driver,
not of any version of Windows.

Also note that such a display is only an estimate anyway, not a real
measurement of the amount of ink left.

As Ken has said, each printer has different ways of displaying settings.
You could, however, try going to Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Pinters and
if yours show there, right-click and see if "Printer Preferences" is
displayed. Usually one of the tabs there will show ink levels.
