Print2fax is a Windows driver that allows you send faxes directly from just about any program that supports a printing function. The driver faxes the currently opened document in the program you have used. If delivered to a virtual fax machine (such as a Teleconsole client), it will be converted  to a PDF format.  


  • Fax documents directly from any PC program.

  • Quick faxing with a built in contact book.

  • Sync contacts with Microsoft Outlook.


Installation and Removal 


Installing Print2fax


The Print2fax installation can be accessed from Telebroad's home page by clicking on Apps on the top menu.



If you are using a phone or a tablet access Apps from the side menu. Note, however, that the driver only functions on Windows computers. You can download it to your mobile device and copy it to your computer later.



Scroll down and find Print2Fax in the "Apps and integrations for your daily needs" section.


Click it and a pop up window will open, where you can click Get It Now to download the Print2fax installer.



You can also download the installer directly from this link:

http://www.telebroad.com/downloads/print2fax.exe


Print2fax will be downloaded into either your Downloads folder or any folder that is designated by your browser's settings. Click it to run it, or click the download menu next to the file name and you can select Open to run it directly or Show in folder to look at the file first and than double click it to run it.



Depending on your version of Windows, you may see one or several notifications about the application trying to make changes to your device. These are normal. Just approve any such notification to proceed by clicking Allow.  


Your antivirus or firewall software may also be triggered and interfere with the installation. Either mark the installation as safe in them or, if this doesn't work, disable them temporarily just for the duration of the installation


Follow the on screen instructions to complete the installation.



 Because this is a driver and not a program you will not see any shortcuts or any launch icons in the Windows menu or desktop for it.


Uninstalling Print2fax


If you decide to uninstall the app, you will need to launch the Control Panel or Settings, depending on your Windows version.


  • On Windows 8.1 and earlier versions you need to access the Control Panel screen and select Programs>Remove a program installation.

    Scroll down to find the "Telebroad Print2fFax Printer" with publisher listed as "Telebroad", as it appears here.

    Select or checkmark it and click Uninstall/Change at the top of the programs list.

    Approve the request to uninstall the driver when prompted.

    Click it to reveal the related options and select Uninstall.

Setting Up


Select Print from any program that supports a printing function. The print dialog window may vary with the program or your Windows version. You need to find and change the selected destination or default printer to Telebroad Print2Fax.


 Here are three examples:

 



Now when you click Print in any program , a window will show up asking you to set up your account by clicking on Settings. Enter your User Name, Password, Caller ID (for your fax line, not your phone line!),  and E-mail address to receive fax confirmations. These are required fields.


You have the option of adding a cover page to the fax by checking the Add Cover Page box and entering the sender's (your) Full Name and Company name.


If you have a Microsoft Outlook installed you can toggle the Provider field to use Outlook contacts data rather than the app's own internal contacts database.


Below the Provider there are also two clickable buttons:


  • The first lets you keep using the internal database but copies your Outlook contacts to the internal database..

  • The second lets you can sync your TeleConsole contacts with Outlook by coping contacts from the internal database to Outlook. 


You only need to enter your settings once. They will be saved for all other programs on your computer.


Usage


Once you are done with the settings, simply enter the recipient's full fax number in the provided field. The Send button, previously grayed out, will become available. Click it to fax the current document from the program you are using.


It's that easy!



A message will inform you the fax has been successfully submitted for faxing by the Telebroad server. 


You will be notified by email once the fax has been sent (usually within a few seconds), including the sending time and a handy PDF copy of fax itself. 


Cover Page


If you checked Add Cover Page in settings, the sending screen will include three additional fields. Enter the recipient's Name and Company Name, and write the cover page note.



Managing Contacts


If the recipient's fax number does not exist in your contacts, you can click Add to Contacts to create a new contact record. 


In the contact screen, enter the contact's Name and any additional phone numbers for him (if any). Whenever you enter a number a new phone number field will be added below it. 


Click Save to keep the contact or Delete to discard it.



Once you have contacts saved you can find them either by typing their name or number. You can also click the Rolodex icon to display a list of existing contacts. Select a contact from the list by using the up, down, and enter keys on your keyboard. You can also highlight a contact by moving the mouse cursor over it, but to select it you still need to press enter on your keyboard.

 


When you have selected a contact, you can click Open Contact  to edit his details or delete him completely.


Lastly, you can click the watch icon to display a history of the contacts you sent faxes to.
