Printers - Adding a Separator Page

This document will describe how to insert a separator page before each document that prints from your desired printer. This process must be repeated with each printer that you need a separator page to print on. If you are self-support and have an administrator account, then you will be able to complete these steps without any problem. If you are fully supported or a staff member, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.
  1. Open the Start menu and type “Devices and Printers” in the search bar. 

  2. Open the Control Panel item of that name that is found in the search.

  3. Once the screen populates your printers, right click on the printer and select "Printer properties"

  4. Go to the “Advanced” tab and click "Separator page..."

  5. Click the “Browse” button. If you scroll all the way down there should be a file called "pcl.sep" and others. 

  6. Select the desired separator page. If you scroll all the way down there should be a file called "pcl.sep" and others. Any of them should display the username and other basic information about your document. Alternatively, please copy and paste this path into the window: C:\Windows\System32\pcl.sep 

  7. Select the file and hit “Apply” on the Printer Properties window.

  8. You should now have a separator page.
