HP LaserJet Pro - Configure trays

Learn how to set up the HP LaserJet Pro printer to handle specific sizes and types of paper.

By default, the printer pulls paper from Tray 1. If Tray 1 is empty, the printer pulls paper from Tray 2 (or Tray 3, if it is installed).

Configuring the tray on the printer changes the heat and speed settings to obtain the best print quality for the type of paper being used. If you are using special paper for all (or most) print jobs on the printer, change the default setting on the printer.

The following table lists possible ways you can use the tray settings to meet your printing needs:
