Sending a Fax

After you install and configure your fax, you can send a fax using the Send Fax Wizard. The Send Fax Wizard walks you through the process of sending a fax. You can send a cover page fax from the Printer and Faxes window or from within Fax Console, or a document fax from a program. When you send a cover page fax, the Send Fax Wizard opens to help you create and send a cover page fax.
