Thanks to Robert Patterson for the quick help.  Thanks also to Raymond Horton 
for the printer-computer advice and warning.  Your memory is correct, I bought 
a Ricoh printer years ago (Aficio AP600N) and still use it.  For printing 
scores 2-up on 11 X 17, I feed the sheets one-at-a time and plan the printing 
order with pencil and paper.  I don't do enough printing to wear out a printer.

Subject: [Finale] Ricoh AP 2610 printer and Windows 10

Dalvin, I seem to recall that you were one of several on the list who got the 
RICOH ap2610 large format printer years ago.

I am glad to see you are using Windows 7. I would say don't upgrade to Windows 
10 with that printer.

I have been using it with Windows 10 for quite some time, but when I had to 
have the hard disk wiped and reinstalled, Microsoft did some kind of update to 
a new version of Windows 10, and the printer will no longer work with that 
computer!  I have to transfer documents to an older computer and print from it, 
a real pain in the neck!
Such is progress?
