Sharp does a good job of updating their print drivers along with the latest operating systems. The PCL6 driver is the most useful for Windows computers, the PPD is the best option for the Macs. Skelton does not condone using the universal drivers. They do not have the same abilities as the PCL6 or PS drivers.
Different drivers work better with different programs or applications, so you might want to add both PCL and PS (post script) drivers to your computer. They interpret colors and fonts differently, so if you are having issues with other of those things, try the other driver.
Setting up the Sharp Print driver with Code or Username/Password
12. Open your Devices and Printers menu, right click on the Sharp and choose Printing Preferences.
13. Click the Job Handling tab, then put the Authentication drop-down menu on the type of Authentication you chose, then enter the User Number or Username/Password into the appropriate box.
*Note: If you plan on printing using various codes, and will not use the same code every time, check the “Auto Job Control Review” box. This will tell the print driver to prompt the user for a code before each print job is sent to the printer.
